More standards compliant based on what? Chrome is 100% acid 3 compliant and has one tiny pause. Chrome has kicked IE's ass in standards compliance for years and continues to do so.
When are they going to make it right for the fact they made The Interview available for XBox users before PS users? That's a huge slap in the face. I won't buy any of their consoles going forward.
Too bad history isn't on your side. Look at inflation numbers since the catastrophically HUGE bailout that occurred over the last banking crisis. The value of the dollar should have collapsed based on your assumptions but that didn't happen. At the end of the day, the dollar is the only game in town in spite of it's storied past. Bitcoin, on the other hand, is as stable as a three legged table.
Yeah, I actually read the fucking article. It at no time mentions anything about them using illegal procedures/tech to bust drug lords.
I'm not licking anything. And how the fuck do you know that all the new ways must be illegal?
You seem to be making a big assumption: that GHCQ was using illegal methods to track drug dealers. Please show me the evidence that they were doing that. This whole "they did x wrong, so y and z must be wrong too" shit is getting really old. For some reason, the people of
Indeed. Apparently Uber hasn't heard of the stock market.
I never said he fabricated anything but it's not hard in benchmarks to set them up to favor whatever you want. It's not hard to find examples of people in the software industry making their pet languages, frameworks, or whatever look better than the competition. It happens ALL THE FUCKING TIME. And I'm sure he makes a ton of money consulting to Microsoft (yes, his own blog says he consults there). So yeah, there's a financial interest alright.
It's a weak argument to say that a former Microsoft employee might be biased towards Microsoft tech? He's been away from Microsoft for 10 years but Code Complete was published in 2004. So he wrote that book while still a Microsoft employee. Additionally, he still lives in the same area which is dominated by Microsoft tech. What's your argument other than calling me sarcastic? None? Thought so.
Yeah, because he doesn't work there anymore, I'm sure he's completely unbiased.
Apparently you thing people from Minneapolis aren't just unambitious but stupid as well. Almost your entire post is a troll. In any event, it was interesting to learn that ambitious folks are from Norway and code PHP. I'll keep that in mind if I ever get some ambition.
As for working to live instead of living to work...welcome to the United States.
p.s. Nobody with any actual programming skills uses Monster to find a job.
There's no doubt C# is a nicer language to work in that Java but so is just about everything. Java is simply dated. However, there's nothing stopping you from using other JVM languages (like Groovy which is extremely easy to learn for a Java dev).
It's not FUD (at least in the US). It's 100% true.
Performance comparisons from a Microsoft employee make C# look faster than Java? Fascinating.
This is one of the stupidest posts I've seen in a while. 1) Java's performance is fantastic. It's one of the fastest languages on the planet. I don't ever run into performance problems where the cause is Java. Ever. It's almost always some database bullshit. I work for one of the highest trafficked websites on the planet so I know a thing or two about performance. 2)
In short, not a single one of your arguments is even remotely accurate. Not surprising because all of you
