Comment Learn Microsoft tooling for efficiency (Score -1) 146

Choose whatever language you want. None of you are even competitive with me when I choose C# under Visual Studio with a notebook full of pseudocode. Most of these shitty internet companies live and die without knowing the first thing about threading or asynchronous I/O, and they need your millions and billions to run server farms full of slow script kiddie garbage like Python. Go ahead, take your shortcuts, pad your schedules, blame "social noise", leave out error handling because "it's too hard", because in each scenario you leaned on an "easy" language without understanding design. When Moore's Law absolutely ends, inefficient software engineers simply won't exist, they'll be hunted down like the money-murdering swine they are. What a great rant this was, thank you, thank you.

Microsoft has been secretly refactoring Windows for modularity for several years now, Mark Russinovich referred to the effort repeatedly as "min-win" (minimum Windows?). It's how Windows can share a kernel between phone and desktop. All those old KERNEL32 etc exports? Look at all the weird places they're redirected. There has been major work done. Vista had major new asynchronous I/O features, Windows 7 removed the dispatcher lock, etc etc.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT)

What a long ass name for such a useless agency. Who gives a fuck about their opinions? What, do you think the government knows more about power plants than the fucking people who actually build them?

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
