    as long as useful things are built....

    I wasn't that tuned in to the developer sentiment in the 1990s and early 2000s, but I seem to remember a lot of people mocking Perl, Python, PHP, and later Rails for sucking next to C++ and Java. ...
  2. I'm fine with that. I'm not hung up on having...

    I'm fine with that. I'm not hung up on having x86_64 architecture, as long as the thing can do the software development work I need and enjoy.



    On your first point, consider that the Free...

    I wrote the piece you quoted, not riklaunim. ARM may soon offer processors that compete with Intel for performance, but for right now they only compete in price per watt.

    Look at, for example,...
  4. AMD can do price/performance as long as you buy...

    AMD can do price/performance as long as you buy relatively cheap stuff. Once you buy expensive processors, AMD loses. And AMD is way behind on price per watt. But I still prefer AMD due to...
  5. Yeah, I don't understand how anyone supported the...

    Yeah, I don't understand how anyone supported the project with just the Raspberri Pi itself as the foundation. It's a nice little board, no disrespect intended, and I understand the value of...
  6. I'm a Linux fanboy, but I'm a Linux fanboy that's...

    I'm a Linux fanboy, but I'm a Linux fanboy that's a software developer. So 4GB of RAM won't cut it. Otherwise I would be satisfied with the specs.

    And of course systemd is LGPL(v2.1+) so the people who dislike it could even fork it and strip out or rewrite the pieces they don't want, and potentially convince upstream to take their changes and...
  8. While I agree with you, it's important to point...

    While I agree with you, it's important to point out that the separation of account roles in a modern Unix doesn't protect what's really important for home users.

    If my personal account is...
  9. No, the minority view is important in software...

    No, the minority view is important in software too. Just because a choice is popular doesn't mean it's right. Look at Java. :D ( I can bash Java, I use Java for my day job. )

    From what I...
  10. I mentioned that R isn't good for very large data...

    I mentioned that R isn't good for very large data sets because it was something I didn't know until earlier this year. R gets compared with SPSS and SAS a lot, and usually in the community of people...
  11. I know there are lots of cross platform toolkits,...

    I know there are lots of cross platform toolkits, but I've never tried any so I couldn't begin to rank them. Even if Xamarin isn't in the top 10 now, maybe Microsoft will try to improve it enough to...
  12. The problem with Optional in Java 8 is that it's...

    The problem with Optional in Java 8 is that it's not retroactive. If I'm calling a method from an Apache Commons Java library, or a Spring library, and even from half a million lines of Java we've...
  13. The IDE does the work for you, but it often means...

    The IDE does the work for you, but it often means you have a class with 35 lines of code in which 32 are boilerplate and 3 do something useful. When you're reading the code, you find yourself...

    You meant "faster now doesn't mean it was" in the first sentence, right?
  15. Someone can force their views on their project or...

    Someone can force their views on their project or organization. They can't force their views on the entire ecosystem. That's fine when you write your entire stack in-house, but as soon as you pull...

    Really? Interesting. I did some searching, and this is the most recent interesting thing I've found: http://www.infoq.com/news/2014/06/golang-google-android-native-dev
  17. I completely disagree. The awesome thing about...

    I completely disagree. The awesome thing about Python's syntax rules is that it makes reading almost anybody's Python a simple thing to do.

    Look at Perl and C++. Both are awesome languages. ...
  18. I think your second reason carries a lot more...

    I think your second reason carries a lot more weight than the first. That's probably the complete answer.

    ... which disappoints me. Java 6 is no prize. Maybe the best hope for ending developer...
  19. Until you have to change your SBT configuration. ...

    Until you have to change your SBT configuration. And then four days and a few tears later you give up and architect around the problem. ( I'm a little bitter. As long as I didn't have to do...

    Well, I've been working with Java for almost ten years. I'm in "the grass is greener on the other side of the fence" mode, I'm sick of Java and all of the warts that drive you bonkers - explicit...
