It's not just the money. Don't forget about all lives that are lost in wars. And people suffering from air pollution caused by burning fossil fuels.
I didn't look into the details of the project, but to me it seems to like the following:
A JIT compiler is used in a virtual machine to run a function/method by compiling it from some sort of bytecode or intermediate representation to native code and then jumping to the generated code to execute it. So in this case this would be when the Common Language Runtime wants to run a CIL method for the first time: it generates LLVM intermediate representation from the CIL, then uses LLVM to compile that to native code.
So it would be: CIL --> LLVM data --> native code
This means that the CLR, and thus all code compiled for
The one problem with their method is that it can only detect overflows in one direction.
No need to worry about that anymore. Zayn Malik has left in order to fix that.
...they want everything, in return for nothing.
And only a small part of a car is used for moving you from point A to point B. Who needs heating, windshield wipers, music, or even seats?
The problem is not WinForms, but WPF. An increasing amount of applications use WPF because WinForms is considered 'deprecated' by Microsoft and people are encouraged to use WPF instead, which is the new 'hot stuff'.
Or Privacy Badger, which has ad blocking only as a side-effect, not as its primary purpose.
Big business and the billionaire class has taken the difference and none of that has ended up in the workers hands. We are working longer and harder and our lives are getting worse.
But I wonder why my browser needs to provide details about the plugins I have installed to any website I visit. What kind of legitimate use could that have?
Unfortunately, this upgrade broke one of my favorite plugins: Tree Style Tab. A previous upgrade caused the whole tree to be expanded when restoring the tabs at Firefox startup, and now since FF 34 new tabs are no longer opened as a child of the current tab
Version numbers? We can increment them!
There is a bug in the e-mail. It should be 'We therefore ask you to send this email to all your friends and then delete all your files on your harddisk manually'.
You still need some of those files on your harddisk in order to send an e-mail. Friends with less than average intelligence might not realize that.
To make it cross-platform for real is hard. Lots of programmers don't try to avoid platform-specific and write code such as:
string fullname = directoryname + "\" + filename;
fullname = Path.Combine(directoryname, filename);
Another mistake is using explicitly hardcoded paths that only exist in Windows. And another challenge would be case-sensitivity of the filesystem on Linux; this can break programs that were developed and tested on Windows only.
The framework must provide for platform-independent ways to do things so that it is easier/shorter to do it the right way than using a naive but non-portable approach. Or programmers not really thinking things through will simply keep writing non-portable code anyway. The example above illustrates that; it is way more conventient to combine pathnames with such a non-portable string concatenation than it is with the right approach.
Does it run Linux?
Not mentioned in TFA, and I haven't seen anyone talk about it yet in the comments here. Or maybe the answer is so obviously 'yes' that nobody even talks about it anymore.
Quick!! Let's buy some extra licenses now before it's too late!
Never mind, we switched to Linux a long time ago already
