oh my, i've totally forgotten about this place.

examples of software chaos are:

All the different technologies you can choose for pretty much the same thing, for example languages.

All the styles of code writing of all the types of programmers that leads to byte entropy.

Parallelization and concurency.

Randomness

Heisenbugs

There is probably no computer in the world that has the same byte arrangement in memory (volatile/non-volatile) with another computer. That's one of the reasons for funny situations like "it works on my computer".

one way to control the chaos is reproducible builds
