Original OSNews Interviews Imendio, based in Sweden, provides services in application and platform development based for Gnome/GTK+ on Linux, *BSD and UNIX based systems. Today, we interview its founder, Mikael Hallendal (also known in the Gnome developer community as the author of Gossip, Blam! and DevHelp applications) about the business of Imendio, the challenges GTK+ poses and more.

I'd demand a refund from your university then because its obvious from your posts last night on the gnome 2.10 article that you have 0 technical knowledge on anything related to how programming languages work.

haha...who's the one swearing .NET is the best thing since slice bread.

But I wouldn't expect you to understand technical issues since you proved last night that you have about 0 technical knowledge.

Sure, and you, the one with infinite technical knowledge, drools over 20 year old technologies mismatched together and called innovation.

If you are the programming guru you claim to be, you'd know by now, that .NET/Java is a rehash of 20 year old technologies found in lisp and smaltalk. What's even more pathetic is that Java/.NET isn't any smaller, faster, or technically better than these 20 year old languages/technology they are replacing.

Instead, they (.NET/Java) are slower, larger, bloated, complex, less expressive, less extensive, more verbose and politically and economically maligned. This, Professor Guru, is the framework you so dearly worship. Oh and C# is just Microsoft's version of Java. Yes, you fell for it sucker!

Reeducate yourself, and take a peak at what the lisp, smalltalk, Dylan environments could do back in them days, and you'd realize the .NET runtime and Java are an embarrassment to todays programming environments. And here comes a .NET shill telling me I have to technical knowledge.

Do you have any idea why .NET was created? If you think it was created to further programming productivity and stir advancement techniques in programming environments you are living in a rock!

And if you think reading about marketing jingles from microsoft.com about .NET and rephrasing them over here at osnews makes you technically knowlegable, then you are an idiot.
