| [ << ]|| 2000 - Y2k || [ >> ] |
| The millenium bug is a complete misnomer. The bug is caused by the end of a century, not by the end of one thousand years. If this had been 1900, we would still be getting the same problem. |
Y2K, as most computer people know, is not accurate, as it implies 2048 AD.
To call it a centennial bug would be inaccurate, as the century does not actually begin until 2001. Perhaps centenium bug would be a little more accurate.
But because this has been brought about by computers which have been around just for the last 50 years, perhaps we should be calling it... "THE PENTIUM BUG"
