True or False: What?

One day, I plan to have my web log up for developer and techies. This entry may or may not appeal to everyone, but is interesting from a programmer and user's perspective.

As some may not know, a boolean is simply a true or false value. In a boolean algebra equation, it would look like x=true.

There is some interesting food for thought as to whether software developers should use booleans or not in code and on the user interface. The notion is the ambiguity in the meaning of true or false. There is sometimes not a clear understanding what true or false means. Are check boxes evil? Make sure to read the comments in the referenced web log entry.
