Yes. Proof of me one day not paying my parking ticket is proof that I will never pay any debts and break all the laws I see.

Do you realise how silly your proof is proof argument sounds? Especially considering the domains which have been proven to ignore the hosts file and firewall rules were done so specifically to close a security hole that would see malware preventing Microsoft patches from preventing further problems or issuing defender updates to fix them.

Arduino is C++. Another incredibly popular platform is the ESP8266 for IoT stuff, that is typically written in Lua, has an Arduino bootloader or is interfaced by an Arduino. In the hobby / messing around market that the Arduino represents C++ dominates well and truly.

That said most *products* aren't made on an Arduino and in the real world I get the sense that embedded projects do favour C.

Comment Re:"Sexual mistreatment"? (Score 1) 379

Legal proceedings are not up to a company, but only up to people involved. I worked at a place where 2 employees were caught having intercourse in a spare room. Both were let go for sexual mistreatment despite not being a criminal or legal issue in the slightest. One then sued for wrongful dismissal and lost that case. You don't need to do something criminal to be fired.

And yet the opposite was true. Mobileyes isn't the one who terminated the relationship.

Also just as well you're not in business, or maybe this is why you're not in business. Terminating a lucrative contact because a customer has an issue for which the customer has full liability and is handling the full PR outfall? If you're that interested on giving away money let me know and I'll send you my paypal details.
