Your assumption, that Office 2016 and Skype For Business are unrelated, is incorrect.
The GP is likely referring to how Skype For Business 2016 is bundled with the Professional Plus edition of Office 2016.
IOW, (s)he meant "update to the latest Skype For Business". So, most likely not shilling.
watts per gram ? Since when is that a measurement standard?
It isn't, yet. But, I first heard of "performance per watt" when Transmeta debuted their first CPU, and similarly thought "who (expletive) cares about that"? Today, performance per watt actually matters in some applications (parallel systems, possibly data centers
Point is, somebody may find a compelling use for these devices if they can be made practical, be they solar-powered robo-flies or whatever.
That defer keyword looks like the mother of all hidden bugs.
At first glance it looks to me like Apple ripped defer straight from Go. I think it has its use -- in a language that doesn't support RAII. But I prefer the latter.
I agree, if we change "about ten years" to "at *least* ten years". Tongue only slightly in cheek. C++ took 25 years (C++11) to become, IMO, a compelling improvement over C.
I disagree with basically everything the coward said -- particularly wrt the Rust community which I think is great -- but I don't use Rust (yet), either. The things that irk me the most about Rust are the lifetime annotations, the fact that it's non-trivial to write a linked-list implementation, and a few issues that will go away after further development (overly restrictive borrow checker and compiler speed). The place it would come in most useful -- working in a corporate-ish environment with morons who don't understand ownership issues and who need a compiler to slap sense into them -- is also the place it is currently (due to novelty, immaturity, and inertia) the least adopted.
But, if Rust can get over some of its present hurdles, it has the potential to become a really good language. And, many would say it already is one today.
What makes you think elemental lithium is any safer than elemental sodium? Pro-tip: it isn't.
That depends on how you're measuring "safer". For example, sodium is more reactive than lithium in water.
With respect, IMO, you have to give the people running the company the strongest disincentive to cheat. What's more of a disincentive for an executive?
a) Company hit with tremendous fines; executives negotiate a severance.
b) Executives prosecuted, and do time in federal. Company hit with (relatively) moderate fines.
If you wanna kill the snake...
Not disagreeing with you, but a nullptr-to-reference cast would at least crash immediately (unless you have a compiler that takes "undefined behavior" too literally). Here's another contrived example:
const char *c = std::string("oops").c_str();
I'm not a c++ expert but I'm pretty sure 'c' now points to freed memory. The real problem is that the code will usually work until a customer runs it. And solutions like valgrind aren't always optimal (consider code coverage and execution speed) or even necessarily available, depending on your platform.
Rust eliminates this class of errors (and several others) entirely, unless you are abusing 'unsafe' (which you can at least grep for in your code) as you mentioned.
I would like Rust to succeed. In several ways, it is basically a 'better' C++ without the C baggage that a lot of people seem to want, and it is clear that Rust's developers have put a lot of thought into it. Still, the language has its warts and oddities. My biggest concern is that support for implementing intrusive data structures (you can Google that, but the Linux kernel's double-linked lists is an example) seemed to be possible, but not Easy, and I think it should be. I also haven't wrapped my head around Rust's lifetimes yet, but it looks clunky. Other things (slow compiler, incomplete library support) should get better with time.
I wish the Rust guys the best of luck, and look forward to using it.
As a data point of one, I'm still running with the 4GB of OCZ ram I bought from newegg (I think) in 2009 and have had no problems. The reviews on that product were also decent.
After reading reviews of their SSD drives, though, I'd avoid those.
I guess the message here (if any) is, pay attention to the reviews on the product. If people say it's crap, it probably is.
What, dare I ask, is a salad shooter?
Just google "salad shooter". It's a kitchen gadget.
K&R is perhaps the single ugliest coding style I have ever seen or used.
Let me introduce you to the GNU coding standards. Please pay particular attention to the crazy way they indent the braces in the function body.
Money isn't everything to everyone. If you were being paid $500.00 per hour to shovel out a barn, wouldn't you take a job that offered something more fun like programing with python even if it paid $490.00 per hour?
Depends on the job. Which one do I take to wade through the least amount of bullshit?
I'm burnt out enough that I might try the barn for a year just for the variety.
Do they have to be in "Airplane" mode?
If the airliner has to transform to Robot Mode to make this work, I can foresee a lot of problems.
Is that because you don't like Compellent, or don't like Dell? (I don't work for either of these companies
Unfortunately I've had the opposite experience. Wine mostly works, and it's amazing it works as well as it does, but something is always broken just enough to make things suck.
In my case, I tried the Portal demo recently, and had random freezes every 10 sec or so that made the game unplayable. (Plus insanely slow startup on a system equipped w/an SSD, but I could deal with that.)
I was looking forward to trying a Linux version of the demo so I could buy the game if it worked. Oh well, too bad for me.
Real Users are afraid they'll break the machine -- but they're never afraid to break your face.
