I use Ruby for lots of serious things, but whatever.
"There is no reason it had to infect OS X"
OS X was not a rewrite, it was NextStep v2. You take what is there and go on with it. Besides, Objective C is waaaaay better than C++ and God forbid, C.
Just because someone states normal engineering practice which involves momentum of tools used to implement a system, just like happened in Microsoft and pretty much all companies does make not one a cultist. Buying a system in language X and going on with it is not not bad, it is normal.
Besides, Objective C is not that bad. IT is certainly better than programming in C, and the clusterfck that is Qt or Gnome. Have you actually ever used interface builder? It is a brilliant piece of design. Apple took it from Next and developed it further because it is really good, not because they are a cult.
Maybe it was continued to be developed by Apple otherwise they would have had to rewrite their entire damn OS? Microsoft used C++ and developed it because otherwise they would have had to rewrite their entire damn OS?? Maybe? Seriously, languages have something called momentum, and once you started (or bought it, like Apple did) you are stuck.
Where do you people get you hate from?
Brainfuck with a type system. Wow. Now there is an interesting idea.
Prolog failed because the syntax is horrifying and the evaluation method is...weird. I wrote an entire compiler in Prolog once, it worked and worked well, but it was just a functional program with bad syntax. The compiler would have been better if written in Haskell (which, incidentally, the compiler was for, as I did not have a Haskell-like compiler at the time).
You are joking, right?
Oh thanks for dumping that word in here. Now the whole thread smells bad!
I have 128 GB of DDR4 ECC RAM in my Desktop and it cost about $400
Actually, most digital cameras let you plug the CAMERA into the laptop with a USB cable, and the camera itself acts as the card reader. Which is also a problem on the Macbook because the laptop does not have a old USB socket anymore. That is way more stupid than the loss of SD-Card
My Camera still takes fine pictures. It is also 10 year old and has CF Cards, not SD Card and certainly not Wifi.Digital Cameras are more dependent on the lenses than the sensors, my old 10 year old EOS is just fine. Which is why I am not planning on throwing it away anytime soon.
Good luck with that Linux game thing.
Bingo. Fully agree with you. I refuse to use Windows 7 because the UI sucks donkeyballs. It is really, really, really puke worthy bad. Windows 10 is much nicer. It is like the ugliest dog you have ever seen vs Brigitte Bardot's ass.
