The real issue here is why "goat rapist"?

Lol, he changed it to "goat murderer" now. That's at least one notch better than before. :whistle:

Poor goat... :no:

I could say the same thing about Notch too especially when what he keeps talking about is false


Except he has his viewpoint and you have yours. And I agree with him. I believe Windows is becoming more restrictive, also. They're already trying to limit how we use Windows and make it more "generic". If they really wanted to, they could push Intel into developing something on x86 instead of ARM that would be equal in terms of power and performance, but they like the idea of making apps available ONLY in an App Store. Of course there will be Pro versions, but they also cost a LOT more. I'm glad someone is standing up for people instead of just acting like sheep.

You can believe it all you want, but it's not fact, in fact it's completely wrong since Windows is still as open as it ever was. what might hppen in the feature it something you can theorize about, but that doesn't make it something that is happening now.

Yeah I'm sure you think it's great, I don't care to be honest, I'm not even touching Java with a ten foot pole.

Java has a badly designed type system which forced the existence primitive types to avoid bad performance, which cause all kind of problems. It also has no support for events, no first-class functions, no type inference for variables, no overloadable operators, some questionable design decisions concerning the == operator, and so on. Heck, it doesn't even have static classes. And its standard library is rather weird - java.util is a PHP-like kitchen sink. And the versioning system...ugh.

Yes, there are worse languages. But that doesn't make Java good.
