Linux Sucks. Java sucks. I'm a Microsoft guy again!
« on: March 16, 2009, 08:18:41 AM »

Yeah, I guess the disappointment with KDE 4 and OpenOffice 3 were the last straw.  Perl is dying.   Ruby never got off the ground.  Java still sucks on the desktop.  All open-source projects are just moving too slow.  Compare that to Windows 7, IE8, Visual Studio 2010, Silverlight 3, and PowerShell - Microsoft is finally starting to get the developer tools right.  IronPython is getting to be the fastest implementation available.  Microsoft Office still holds near-universal market dominance.  Etc.

So I'm back in the Redmond camp.  :D

Damn. It took Visual Studio over two thousand versions before SOMEONE wanted to use it.  :shock:

Hmmm I'm not a big fan of Java either but you are far from correct when you say Linux sucks (and before you call me some fanboy let me say that I'm typing this from my Windows XP workstation). I use Linux (CentOS) on my web servers everyday as they give me less of a headache.

Oh, I still use the LAMP stack on the server side (occasionally substituting BSD, PostgreSQL, Ruby, etc), and even most apps I use are based on XUL (Firefox, Miro, Komodo IDE, etc) or GTK (Pidgin, etc).  I'm just impressed with Microsoft's desktop offerings and am breaking the ideological "avoid Microsoft" bubble I once had.  Maybe it started during my nuttier Alex Jones days, don't know, and it was certainly strengthened when I saw that police cruiser dashboards are running Win2K...

If that IE 8.1 is more than an April Fool's Joke, Windows 7 might be a serious contender for me. :S

You need to try OS X and Cocoa/ObjectiveC

I own an $800 PC and I have installed OS X on my system. Its amazing, even when you get bored with the eye candies you can never get bored with the sheer responsiveness of the system.

Java has always sucked.  Linux has its uses, but MS is the best all around!
