PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Remember back when Nokia jumped to Windows Phone 7, abandoning all other platforms and future directions? Remember Elop's infamous 'burning platform' memo was coveniently 'leaked' to the web? Remember how Elop claimed Windows Phone 7 was the only way forward, since nothing else inside the company would be ready for prime time soon enough? Remember how I thought this was a very good and sane decision? Well, the first reviews of what will be the only MeeGo handset from Nokia (the N9) are in, and well... To whoever decided to go WP7 and ditch MeeGo: I don't like you. To myself: I'm an idiot for arguing this was a good idea.

Just because there aren't that many bright people on this planet and enterprises need fill their ranks with stupd C# devs that don't really understand anything and need VS handholding all the way does not mean that it is any good.

The world is build on C and C++, deal with it.


That's unfortunate. You enjoy being a masochist. Spending more time worrying about, and fighting with the language instead of being productive.

Enterprises see the value in rapid application development, and I didn't think it needed mentioning that managed languages present some of the soundest development principals for maintainable, scalable, reusable code.

But this isn't even about managed vs unmanaged. Even your C++ tools are lacking. Please don't get me started with the absolute bullshit that GDB is.
