General Development "For years I've tried my damnedest to get away from C. Too simple, too many details to manage, too old and crufty, too low level. I've had intense and torrid love affairs with Java, C++, and Erlang. I've built things I'm proud of with all of them, and yet each has broken my heart. They've made promises they couldn't keep, created cultures that focus on the wrong things, and made devastating tradeoffs that eventually make you suffer painfully. And I keep crawling back to C."

Unlike the other common programming languages of our days, C is the only one expressive enough to do everything you want to do with the machine.


You, sir, are an idiot! Please remove the fingers from the keyboard immediately, and never write a line of code or text again!
