Re: C programming language discussion

I get some of the comments, however I'm still not convinced that C is worse than the newer languages it has supposedly been made obsolete by. C++ is a good example. I'm no expert on either C or C++ but I know of people who are and the ones I respect the most are of the "C++ is a disease" "C++ takes ...

Re: C programming language discussion

C has many more applications than just kernel/system programming. Take the Enlightenment window manager and, more importantly, the related EFL (Enlightenment Foundation Libraries). The EFL cover so many things and they're all written in C (mainly because their creators prefer C). Interestingly, they...

C programming language discussion

I'm currently learning to program in C (I'm teaching myself). I know that C++ is probably more widely used nowadays and that Arma is written in C++, however I'm starting to feel that C is the way forward for me. I studied C++ at university, even though I didn't fully learn/use all features of the la...

Re: Fondest Tron Memories

On the whole, the people were better in the early days of this game, there is no doubt about that and it's the people that make the game what it is. Even though my best memories were of playing Fortress (Fort Cafe was my favourite server), I have fond memories of both playing and chatting with peopl...

Re: Operating systems and other software discussion

@Lucifer Good to have you back and it's nice to see you fanning the flames of this wonderful flame war. About GNU: I'd be careful trash-talking GCC, since somewhere around 70% of the world runs on apps built by it. I think even Apple is building all their stuff with GCC, but I could be wrong about t...

Re: Operating systems and other software discussion

My Motorola/Lenovo G5 isn't supported by Lineage. I think I'll wait for an OpenBSD phone anyway :P

Re: Operating systems and other software discussion

I wouldn't consider using iOS either delinquent and as you rightly say, you need to replace what the manufacturer puts on your device with something else. Fingers crossed that one day I'll be able to do that with a high quality, open source OS of my choice. My friend has just bought a new laptop bec...

Re: Operating systems and other software discussion

It's important to remember that ReactOS is in Alpha stage of development and probably will be for some time so, yes, it's buggy and incomplete. However, in my opinion, it has more potential than Linux and even the BSDs as far as the masses are concerned. We have to remember that most of us here are ...

Operating systems and other software discussion

Seeing as the forums are very quiet at the moment, I'll try to get a discussion going about operating systems and other software. Ideas of what to talk about include what you use/have used/want to use, hints and tips for others, the future of software, etc. Both facts and opinions are welcome. I'll ...

Re: Activity? :(

At least we are all still checking in here from time to time. :-) Yeah we are and hopefully that won't stop. Good grief. Why are you so in love with BSD again? I ran freebsd for a while on a spare tower I had...now I'm installing debian...oops! Ok, for those that get bored easily, look away now... ...

Re: Activity? :(

I think quite a few of us still care a lot about this game and its community even if we don't play it much any more (for various reasons). I'm still optimistic that one day it will make a come back, even if changes will need to be made for this to happen. I haven't moved to any other games myself ei...

As recent events confirm, that's all Intel chips are good for #Meltdown (and #Spectre). :)
