Believe we had an article on this a while ago, could be mistaken, might have been off-hand discussion.

And I also hate excessive Boost usage on all sorts of unnecessary things already in the STL or even plain C.

Wow, nasty language there!
However, C++ is the livelihood of quite a few people. Many of them enjoy the challenge it brings.

C++ is my language of choice, with Java second. The language I dislike since "hate" is such a strong word would be VB. It just takes longer to write an application.

I agree with you there, VB in my opinion goes overboard with simplicity, removing line breaks, brackets, and curly braces (usually replacing them with lengthy words), for me that makes it hard to tell apart code blocks and scopes making stuff even more confusing.

But I guess everybody has their own preferences.

Yeah i still like python even though it has no brackets and curly braces. But there really is something nice about languages like C/C++ and Java with their very explicit syntax.

People in that link are missing the bigger picture. "Pure C as opposed to C++. No idea why. ". Thats because linus likes C more than c++. Its what he is faimilar with. Thats why the kernel is in C.

For the most part, I have a lot of respect for Mr. Torvalds for what he's done for FOSS and the OS and development worlds, but this post makes him seem nothing more than a kid who's throwing a temper tantrum because he didn't get his way.

C# annoys me.

Could you elaborate on that?
I have the same feeling with VB, but I cannot tell exactly why that is.
I even did some programming in it.;)
I am beginning to believe that with programming languages it is the same as with food, people, cars... You either like them or you don't.

Yep, I've been forced to do VB in college, I really don't like it.
One of my favourite languages is Flash Actionscript 2.0, its syntax is very similar to C++/Java, and it's extremely flexible and easy to use.

I don't deny that, I just dislike the language :P

The NHS IT system has cost 12.4 billion so far (up to 20 billion expected total) and is CRAP.

I did a year of VB in college and on top of that an internship. That is why I strongly prefer other programming languages. I run Ubuntu and Windows and hold about equal respect for both Linus and Bill, probably more so for Linus for adopting open source technology.

I just talked to Bill. He said that he and Linus send you much respect. Word.

Hehehe, very funny! I think C# takes at least 10 times more typing than C.

If you use NotePad as editor I will not deny your statement.
But I use the editor of Visual Studio to write C#. It has snippets and intellisense, allowing me to type C# code 10 times faster than you can type C code.
