Dystopia - Fallacies Conquered

Dystopia - from NetflixOSS's Adrian Cockcroft:
We have spent years striving to build perfect apps running on perfect kernels on perfect CPUs connected by perfect networks, but this utopia hasn't really arrived.
Instead we live in a dystopian world of buggy apps changing several times a day running on JVMs running on an old version of Linux running on Xen running on something I can't see, that only exists for a few hours, connected by a network of unknown topology and operated by many layers of automation.
Reminds me of Fallacies of Distributed Computing, but from the perspective of people who have actually vanquished the beast with weapons that are usable by others.
