.... In a recent report submitted by group of "Expert Consultants", GCC was found to be "too functional" and having "no orientation", and recommended GCC devs to develop some "Class" within and become more "Object Oriented"..
With Z already in place and with [not so] recent inline deduplication feature, I think ZFS should do it.
The problem can be even more screwing than what it appears to be right now. The difficulty with schoolteachers are that they no more have the habit of learning new stuff. And as they are not familier with OO.o they would force their students as well to use something which they are comfortable with. This problem is not new. There are many places where the prof. have penalised students and have discouraged them from using GCC or IDE's like DevCPP bacause these old aged, head in the coffin and legs in the grave profs don't find themselves comfortable with the error messages which are not generated by Visual C++ or Turbo CPP for that point. What needs to be done is that the institutions all across the globe should try and make their faculty members aware about the latest Open Source tools and validate use of Open Source tools as a standard alternative.
