When Eclipse is crashing with a segmentation fault, it is almost always in swt. So the problem is with the native code which swt calls in order to interface with the underlying operation system.

That can only be solved by writing the entire Operation system in a safe language, but nobody is working on that.

I have newer seen Eclipse segfault outsite swt code.

Don't this code have the problem that you call some_work from the gui thread, and thus will block all updates of the graphics userinterface while some_work is running?

That problem can be solved, but it is always things such as long running tasks, and async callbacks which causes problems. Especially if you need to populate the gui with the work from some_work, while some_work is still doing its work.

Yes I can buy it, but then you need to include hardware installation price and hosting price.

And if the Amazon computer hosting my vm dies, the system will just boot up on a new computer and restart the vm, without me even knowing it. With the dell I would have next day business service aka far to much down time.

The reason the company I work for uses vms(Not from amazon however) is that if there are hardware problems we just reboot, and if there are to many problems with our host, all we have to do is a dns change, a scp, and a database copy(Or restore from backup) and then we can be online in a new data center.

I would however be cautious with a big database server at amazon, because I don't think their io performance is that good, and than is the thing a huge database server really need.

Lvalue/rvalue is a thing most languages have, but most developers don't really use these terms unless they have taken a compiler writing course.

But languages which uses references includes java and php (And i guess c#/.net). Just try to google "does java use pass by value" to see the confusion. (Which is sourced in the fact that nobody have a definite definition of what a reference or pointer* is.

*I would argue that a pointer is simply a memory address, and that the value of a pointer is an memory address, but there are people who disagree.

No, I would use 10/40/100 (Depending on how fast I really need it) gigabit ethernet.

It seems like people can't find a good reason to use Thunderbolt. Yes you can connect a monitor, but I already have hdmi and dvi, so no need to make an new standard for that. And for anything else, either ethernet or usb is the thing to use.
