I wish I had mod points to mod you up. Much more accurate then parent. Rust is alive and well.

Adopting.... yeah right. More like embracing and extending. According to the handy dandy MS handbook, the next step is extinguish. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E... I'm not sure what the real agenda is yet but TypeScript and .NET seem to be their weapons of choice. Hey, if they can develop some great products and compete without reaching for the monopoly hammer, I'm all for it. However, history has shown that MS uses their monopolistic position to eliminate competition and then sit on a the sub-par product for years.

Comment Re: Tabs vs Spaces (Score 4, Insightful) 428

This debate only happened because some programmers stopped thinking about the indentation abstraction. You shouldn't be thinking in terms of spaces vs tabs. Instead you should be thinking in levels of indentation for blocks. Indentation is not some technique to make your code look pretty, it's there to show a clear separation of logic, loops, blocks etc. Code is art, just not Ascii art. One keystroke per indentation is the simplest and most efficient.

Big corp. Takes them a while to copy features from competitors. I haven't run Windows in years but after seeing this demo, the UI at least would work well with my workflow. I wouldn't consider switching yet because there's much more to an OS that the UI but it is a significant factor.
