Comment Re:Agile (Score 1) 332

Agile is specifically designed to remove all choice and creativity from programmers. It is designed to give the power to the product and marketing department. When agile fails, it's because programmers don't like being held down, and product people don't concentrate on the important fundamentals, only the shiny surface.

Comment Re:Do away with them (Score 1) 89

Every language that has NULL has the tools to deal with NULL (i.e. the ability to compare a reference to NULL). The problem isn't NULL, the problem is that lazy programmers don't account for the real world, where data is messy and failures in other parts of the system happen all the time.

Comment Re:USB HID (Score 1) 69

Drivers? For a *mouse* ?
It's fucking USB HID device (or bluetooth wireless if your laptop has Bluetooth 4.0 LE and you go dongle-less).
It's just a bunch of axis and buttons (though you have to admit that the MX Master mice tend to have a little bit more than the average of them).
You just plug into anything with generic USB HID support and it should work out of the box.
If it doesn't work, you shouldn't blame Logitech, you should blame the retarded operating system that fails at basic USB HID.

Oh, you plug it in and it works, but you don't get all the fancy per-game remapping and 30s startup time and 1-2GB RAM consumption. Those are worth something too, you know.

In other news, Logitech's "drivers" have always been shit.
