General Development Appfour added, among other features, C/C++ support to its new version of AIDE. From Android-IDE, "Now you can write parts of your app or your whole app in C/C++ on your device. AIDE supports the Standard Android NDK toolchain (GCC 4.6 + Bionic, STL, ...). No changes are necessary if you want to build an app developed on a PC with Eclipse. C/C++ development is fully integrated: Build errors appear in the error list and files can easily be navigated to with Go to file. The editor supports C/C++ syntax highlighting."

I agree 100% about Turbo C etc. Unfortunately for tablet fans though, whilst the technology is more than capable of anything we could do with a computer 10 years ago, there is more money/mindshare/"strategy" in the trivial apps and games, and not programming tools.

As attractive as many of these tablets are, whether we like it or not, they are artificially restricted in a way that our 386s (or Acorns, Amigas etc.) were not.

10 years ago companies worked on making their computers do as much as possible with the technology they had. Now they spend time removing and limiting capabilities.
