Recently took on working on the linux progress
patch. The original homepage is still at lpp.freelord.org and my
version is at strath.org
Currently using java for college, but it is definitely not my cup of coffee so to speak. It seems like the syntax is so C/C++ like, but restricting you from things that I am not used to being restricted from. Not to mention the GUI performance is horrible.
I really do not believe in all of these new languages. Because by simplification you must sacrifice the ability to change aspects.
If I create a window in GTK or Windows, there are several properties I must specify traits to tell the computer how to draw it. If you make a generic CreateWindow() that takes no properties, you benefit from a more standardized look, but loose alot of functionality. Granted, we can take this function and just overload it, making it more user friendly. That seems to be a happy medium. And certainly C/C++ is up to this task, so why use a new language to do it?
