OpenBSD Theo de Raadt has announced the release of OpenBSD 5.2. The OpenBSD 5.2 release page has a detailed list of all changes and improvements. As always, I would love for someone to write proper items about OpenBSD releases - it's outside my interests and cursory glances don't do it justice.

PS. Generally, quite many French ones, what about that? ;p

At some point in the 80s, our government decided that investing in computer science was critical and brought massive amounts of Thomson MO5 and TO7/70 computers to middle schools, together with new programmes that featured programming courses.

Might be a remainder of that era, or just misplaced nationalism.

And OMZ, GOTO++?! If that's what I think it is, it could be... brilliant ;)

Object-oriented GOTOs ? How would that work ? ;)

But seriously, with relative prevalence of Chinese on that list, one might wonder if that's not a song of things to come in ~computing...

Like, tonal programming languages and 7% less female programmer births per year? Well, sucks... ;)

Hm, you most likely fared better than my place:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ZX_Spectrum_clones#Elwro_800_J... (epic casing ;> )

...and I haven't even seen either of them, ever. Nor any computer classroom before the PC era. Generally, probably another examples of economic cargo cults (~"developed countries produce lots of steel? Well then let's do lots of steel!"), quite prevalent in Warsaw Pact economies. The was no educational system to it, no real push.

Object-oriented GOTOs ? How would that work ? ;)

Exactly, the idea sounds crazy enough!(?) ;>

Only 7% less would be a major improvement, me thinks...

But seriously, I mean generally how the Chinese supposedly strive for technology independence (also check out Loongson) - with their expanding sphere of influence, this should push their tech more and more over time. And language.
