By 'more likely' I assume you mean similar to the difference between
not buying a lottery ticket and buying one ;)

Dr Dobbs used to be a fun read, I lost interest about 3 years ago when
every issue was either entirely Java (and hence binned due to being
entirely obselete within 12 months with the next release) or .Net
(with the same problem, but instead of being free, it was proprietary
and expensive).
