    It's not "bullshit", it's the consensus opinion. Just do a Google search for "C++ too complex" and you get back a zillion hits and blog articles discussing the very topic.

    You're using Fedora, a bleeding-edge distro whose stability has been the butt of jokes in places like the Linux Action Show (e.g. the immortal diatribe on two menu options, "System Update" and...

    It's really a mixture of Python, Rust, Go, with a few other things from PHP etc. and static typing. We already have things like that with Genie, Boo, etc. I'm not sure it has anything to offer the...

    My desktop has an Athlon II X3 with an unlocked 4th core, overclocked to 3.2GHz. Interpolating on CPU benchmark.net, my CPU's probably about 10% slower than the one here. The system also only has 2GB...

    I found the original mention of Nuitka misleading. While it does convert to C++ there's been little focus on speed yet, only compatibility. As such, it's not close to the performance of Cython or...

    You're confusing where a language has achieved most of its success with what the language is actually capable of being used for. For instance, while PHP really is designed for web coding, Python is a...

    While I agree with everything else you wrote and thought it was spot-on (using a low-level language as a first option is often a form of premature optimization), I can't agree with the above...
