I also deeply resent how the arduino people have tried to hijack common english words for their private use. Every effort should be made not to tolerate this in the larger world.
Wow... just... Wow.
It makes me wonder how he even managed to post that.
He couldn't have used a computer
because the original meaning was "a person who performs calculations or computations
He probably doesn't have a firewall
because that would be "a stone, masonry or earthen bank to retard the passage of sparks or flames
And he certainly doesn't use bits
, because they are either "the metal mouthpiece of a bridle, serving to control, curb, and direct an animal
" or "the sharp part of a tool, such as the cutting edge of a knife or ax
I could go on but as others have pointed out, he's a jerk and an idiot who deserves to be ignored.
The only languages that never change are the ones that are no longer spoken by anyone.
Just try reading Chaucer in the original form, with letters and words that are no longer in use and no punctuation:
He nolde his wordes for no man forbere
But tolde his cherles tale in his manere
Me aþinkeþ þat I schal reherce hem heere
And þerfore euery gentil wight I preye
Demeþ nought for goddes loue þat I seye
Of yuel entent but for þat I moot reherse
Here tales alle be þei bettre or worse
