Moore is the creator of the open source penetration testing framework Metasploit, which Rapid7 acquired in 2009. Moore says he will continue to work on Metasploit and will remain active in the community even after he leaves Rapid7 on January 29.
This new version of Chrome should be yet another reason for Mozilla to collectively shit its pants in fear.
Good. I hope they become irrelevant, simply due to what their attitude towards Opera users was ten years ago - and especially the attitude of Asa Dotzler, one of the most horrible trolls ever to have existed on the internet.
Soon enough, Mozilla will drop to Opera's market share. I'm going to laugh, oh how I'm going to laugh!
And then I'm going to start hoping that Opera falls from 2% to 0%, because they had an incredible browser and fucked it up exactly like Firefox did, by chromifying it entirely and alienating their decade-long users. Did they gain market share by making a Chrome clone? Nope. Quite the opposite.
Ah, two accounts isn't that bad
Still, in the age of Gmail, it's hard to think anyone would be dealing with Exchange, unless they're in a company, which then gets Outlook with no cost to the employee.
Looks great, but the free version only supports 1 account... That's good enough for a random person, but your average IT power user has at least three email accounts to handle...
Why the hell would anyone use Go?
(Serious question, since our editors didn't tell us why Go was created, what Go's intended purpose was and whether or not anyone is actually using Go.)
As a software developer here that likes to fiddle with all languages, the second paragraph from Wikipedia seems to answer your question nicely: "It is a statically typed language with syntax loosely derived from that of C, adding garbage collection, type safety, some structural typing capabilities, additional built-in types such as variable-length arrays and key-value maps, and a large standard library."
So from the first few words someone might know C and desire garbage collection to be handled for them? Golang might be a better selection for them than Java.
Personally for me, the built-in primitives for concurrency make it a great language for tinkering in realms of software design that were once onerous to me. But that's only one of a few of the language's goals.
Maybe a better set of questions would be for an elevator pitch on why someone should use golang? Or perhaps if they have dropped some goals of golang for others as development went forward?
There's already a game called Go, which has about a gazillion articles on how to program it. Couldn't you come up with a name that would be less ambiguous? Now, when you see a user group for "Go programming", you have no clue which one it is.
In conversation, I refer to it as golang. You are right on your point about potential for confusion but I don't think your example is apt anymore. Googling for programming go appears to yield only results about golang. Also, it is not without tangential benefits like being able to call Go developers "gophers."
I think when I first started programming Groovy long ago I stumbled upon a website promising that software development was groovy
In short the success of your language is a big enough concern than the name of your language is negligible (with the exception of negative words). The search results will follow.
ummmm... you might actually try reading what he wrote. Mighty big of you to say that he agrees with what you are saying.
Thank you for so astutely reading that thread; I thought maybe I was losing my mind
