npsimons's Journal: Fucking Microsoft 4

Journal by npsimons

You know why I hate Microsoft? They can't follow standards. Or they declare themselves a de facto standards body, even over things they have no rights to dictate standards on. Like C++. I had forgotten that MSVS has a broken version of std::copy(). It doesn't work on simple char arrays. Works fine on VxWorks and Linux. Fucking Microsoft.

      Yeah, pretty much, and I don't have the balls to walk off the job like you did to vote. That's still one of my favorite inspirational stories, BTW. Granted, being forced to use MS stuff isn't really comparable to being kept from voting.

      The last project demanded we port to MSVC++ 2005 (SP1) as they didn't have source or money to recompile the sim they were plugging our library into. Between MSVC++ and VxWorks, it was a wee bit frustrating. I'm just thankful I could run the code under valgrind in Linux. As a maintenance programmer, valgrind has made my life so much easier.

      Meh, if only I had the balls to start a business of my own and say "sorry, I don't do Mic
