Garbage! You can start programming in any age just fine.
Since you're mentioning Intel....doesn't Intel Fortran and Intel C++ share the same optimizer and the same code generator? I wonder what the *real* performance difference would be between those two. Latest Fortran revisions give you some extra array intrinsic operations, but C++ gives you SIMD intrinsics for tuning in some added boost in critical spots. Sounds like a draw to me.
You very well could be right K.S. I am not a programmer. Wanted to be. Too late to start I think. I was just going by what was in the article. I had hoped others would comment on the the "3 modern condenters" but the bulk of comments are in line with the article: "it just works and it is fast and has HUGE libraries and legacy code." From what I could follow Julie seemed the most interesting, but the bugs not out of it yet.

The people with porn Tumblrs don't need to move, they just need an easy way to be found. Why not a retro, Yahoo-style directory? That's how lots of us found things before search engines got so good. Just start tumblrporn.com (lawyers permitting) and list all the blogs Yahoo doesn't want indexed, in categories. Sell ads. Profit!
As a person who actually USED Yahoo's original search engine, I think this is a wonderful idea, the law permitting, as you so wisely stated. And that it could actually be PROFITABLE as well is intriguing. BTW, you sig is both awesome and sadly totally correct.
I always love how people simultaneously believe that the NSA is so technically brilliant that it can collect and analyze every message sent by every random person on earth, but also so stupid that they name their secret backdoor key _NSAKEY.
No shit! I am laughing at most of the comments to this. Especially, those that think anything actually attached to the Internet is in any way secure from an agency like the NSA and DHS. ROFLMFAO The only system that's secured is off, in a safe at an undisclosed location. And today, you better hope you didn't tell yourself where that was because they might try to torture it out of you.
I agree totally. I worked for the NSA in their Army military arm (ASA) way back in the 1970s. The Motto on the wall, no lie, was "In God We Trust, All Others We Monitor." One cannot "secure" the internet unless it is taken "offline". Iran is doing just this in wake of their "worm" attacks on the nuclear facilities.
7) outlaw lobbyists
And how do you propose to do that without either 1) running afoul of the 1st amendment's "freedom to peaceably assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances" bit, or 2) passing an amendment to repeal parts of the 1st?
Not sure I am reading your right. But I don't believe "asking for handouts" that lobbyists to is tantamount to "free speech" for "redress of grievances", as you say. I could be wrong. Did not major in Poli Sci.
I actually feel like KDE and Gnome were the traitors, not me. If Windows 9 is anything like Windows 8 I'm going to have a huge problem.
You know the mantra: one good MS release, the next sucks balls, the next good, ad infinitum. So it goes
It lists the authors suggestions as to how Google should have done it to ensure great success. Some of these are : Go with a lesser screen for affordability (also using 16:9 ration instead of a "retro" 3:2"; including touchscreen; suggestion emulation program for Android apps; and a Adobe Photoshop Elements-like exclusive app.
Finally, the author suggests that if Google was willing to eat some costs for marketshare on the Google Nexus Tablets and Phone, surely they could eat some on this, or, at least, have a middle offering instead of going from $250 to $1,300!
Your thoughts, Slashdotters?"
