    What I think may be going on is that the poster is installing from the live image. Unlike the DVD, not everything can fit in that image and thus after the install YaST has marked to install the...

    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...

    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...
