    Well, Suse did it. That says very little on "is it a good community project", but it cannot be that bad for server management if both Suse and RHEL bet on it.

    Wow, I'm too tired of reading such language in every single post of yours. Congrats, you're the first non-troll to go in my ignore list :)

    Hum, ok. I guess there's no reason it wouldn't work though (the "start everything" thing).
    It's interesting to know, but the important thing to me is "does it work", and in practice it seems to. But...

    Fortran is indeed faster than C and C++ because of forbidden aliasing.
    The C subset of C++ is of course as fast a C (that has been shown by benchmarks of compiling C projects with C and C++...

    Hum, not clear to me. I knew systemd managed dependencies slightly differently from upstart, but to be honest I don't know the actual difference.
    Is that linked to socket activation? (when talking...

    He said "not immediately". Which is exactly the difference between readable and understandable.
    And I do not reject it because it is unreadable to me, but because it is unreadable/less readable to...

    He understood the line. I understood the line.
    So we do "know" C++.
    That line was still horribly unreadable, and if someone wrote something like that in one of the C++ projects I manage (as part of...

    See here for a practical example.
    Though I do believe that logind could work without systemd explicitly being PID1 (although it couldn't guarantee security anymore).

    But everything is in the link described.
    Targets, units, timers have dependencies, which lets you build dependency trees.
    When booting the system, graphical.target is selected, so systemd launches...

    Ah thanks, I was wondering what a real usecase was, as gifs nowadays are mostly used to display small videos, and as animated UI elements and animated smileys should simply be forbidden :)
    But...

    Seems like a very reasonable workflow. Even though I personally like the language, I certainly wouldn't advise C++ as a prototyping or gluing language :)

    No, this is correct. I have even heard of engines (js one? can't remember) that have several levels of optimization depending on the time spent running the fragment, and would recompile the most used...

    If it runs for months, don't use "faster python", use C++ or even Fortran, profile guided optimizations, and builds targeting the hardware you are using.
    Python is largely fast enough for 99% of...

    Yep, less lines does not equate to more readability :)
    By standards, he means can be compiled as standard C++. C++ should be used with external frameworks, the std is a good place to start, but I...

    well, hash table access is "constant time", so it is theoretically O(n), but that constant can be rather big :)
    Quite possibly premature optimization, without knowing more about the problem (in...

    Note that there is a range-based for loop in C++11, as shown in my previous post.
    There are a lot of good things in C++11 (auto, smart pointers, new keywords such as null_ptr to replace macros,...

    Managing user sessions is simply not easy. Check what both KDE and Gnome maintainers say on the subject.
    Consolekit does it, but is unmaintained, and apparently already starting to break.

    To allow for comparison, here would be a c++ version, indeed longer, and not even necessarily faster, although still acceptably readable:

    That's not a comparison of the language per se, but of the libraries available for said language. Of course as your colleague was writing the library himself, it took him much more time, but because...
