    Basically, nothing much... A few upstream packages changes, notably kernel updates. There's more if you are coming from 12.04 but 13.10 users will barely notice any differences.

    I'm running Chrome version 34 on Linux. Flash has been working perfectly. Flash is built into Chrome using the Pepper APIs and does not use NPAPI.

    Is the Phoronix article just completely wrong? Or...

    He was a co founder of TypeSafe and a lead developer on Scala. He rails on a ton of things, like the Scala collections, the complexity of the Map.map function signature, the number of casts in the...

    Paul Phillips rant is insightful and entertaining. He's holding Scala to a much higher bar than Java/C#.

    Sure, Scala isn't perfect. Many argue that Haskell, Agda, or Idris make less sacrifices and...
  8. Earlier, you said there is no decent competition...

    Earlier, you said there is no decent competition to .NET/C#:



    And you said Java isn't even close to as good as C#:



    When I articulate how Scala addresses that _exact_ issue better than...

    1. You agree that Scala's syntax is simpler regarding properties/variables with less keywords and syntax complexity and that Scala can usually implement the same property/variable logic with less...
  10. Try to do the following where a ShapeBuilder can...

    I'm not quite sure I understand. This sounds like a reflection problem and then you mention generics, could you give an example use case, maybe that'll help me understand what you're getting at here...

    - C# (and C++/Java) have both the old A[] syntax and the newer List<A> which are mostly the same thing. In C#, the A[] syntax is there for mostly pre C# 2.0 legacy. Scala completely removes the A[]...

    The Scala translation of that C# would be the following. I added a dummy wrapping TestClass and an initial value.



    class TestClass { val a = 123; } // ---> read-only for everyone
    class...
  13. Why can't you use a backing property in C#...

    Why can't you use a backing property in C# instead of using a backing class instance variable in C#? The property may be overkill, but you don't lose anything.



    I give you credit for actually...
  14. I understand the differences between C# class...

    I understand the differences between C# class instance variables and C# class instance properties. The latter has more functionality, you can swap out a naive get/set with non-trivial get/set logic....
  15. Why would you want a C# class instance variable...

    Why would you want a C# class instance variable instead of a class instance property?

    I know the difference between a C# class instance variable and a class instance property. C# properties have...
  16. You are echoing a C# debate point and are just...

    not even close. they are very much different. for example, java class has no real in code visible properties. you need to write get_/set_ methods and then remember that those are property methods. in...

    Pretty much every major developer technology is free and open source today. Microsoft is just catching up with that.

    To consider an example outside of the .NET/JVM rivalry: look at Google Dart,...

    Can Microsoft's C# compiler run on Linux? Does C# LINQ to SQL work with any database other than Microsoft?

    Even if they fixed this, wouldn't this just be playing catch up with the Java platform,...
