Journal: Java is dull 1

Journal by boelthorn

I started skimming through some Java tutorials this morning. Everyone of them was either written for complete noobs and/or was as exciting as reading a dictionary... Does ANYone has ever done something one could remotely classify as "cool" in Java? Does Java rock? ... No ...

But nevertheless: Know thy foe...

Journal: Lispers unite!

Journal by boelthorn

I cannot believe it... I am amazed... scared... I am getting PAID for programming Common Lisp.

I know there are lots of mind-blowingly good lisp programmers out there who would kill for such an opportunity.


Journal: Any games developed for Linux?

Journal by boelthorn

I just browsed the web in order to find some new games for Linux. (Don't get me wrong, I clearly prefer FreeBSD over Linux for political and practical reasons, but it's Linux emulation does a very good job) My success was mildly speaking demoralising.
So I ask the following questions: Are there any decent games being developed for any free operating system? Do new games only appear on Windows? Is there no chance for companies to earn money with Linux games?

Technology is dominated by those who manage what they do not understand.
