Google "Native Client enables Chrome to run high-performance apps compiled from your C and C++ code. One of the main goals of Native Client is to be architecture-independent, so that all machines can run NaCl content. Today we're taking another step toward that goal: our Native Client SDK now supports ARM devices, from version 25 and onwards."

But thats the case for all languages.

Nope, some are ironed for these kind of stuff, some fail to do so.

Like what?

Quite honestly, I think it's silly making comments like these when you've not even written one line of code.

You have the premise that I don't write code, cute.

I was talking about Go, not stating that you've never programmed in your life

Why is it people always assume the worst when reading comments online?

Or STFU and let people who have used the language comment.

Why only the people who have used the language? how about those who have reasons to avoid it at any cost?

The answer to that should be quite obvious. if you've not used the language then your obviously not in a position to form an educated opinion. It would be like asking a biology student to write a paper on quantum entanglement because it's all just science :-P

However the language you've used there demonstrates quite a hatred, which is odd if you've never used it. So you've obviously got your own biases clouding your judgement here.

No no no, I don't hate Go, I mean, it has some good features like concurrency and fast compilation.

I said I don't like the syntax, but, looks more like Go is your pet project or you work at Google, because telling me to STFU in such aggressive way reflects that.

Oh yeah, and for your information, I've tried Go already, and that's why I concluded that the Syntax sucks monkey balls IMHO.

I don't work for Google and was only aggressive because you gave the impression you hadn't used it. If you had then I genuinely apologise.

Personally I love the C syntax and use to love Pascal before I got into C derived languages. Go, for me, is an elegant marriage of the two. However we're talking about personal preferences so I can sympathise with those who don't prefer it.

You still didn't answer my earlier question though. You gave an example of a function with complicated types (akin to C++) and said other languages solved that problem. Which languages and how?

I don't have a dog in this fight, but dude...I think you are the one being hateful here. I've actually never read such an angry comment from you as the one where you told him to "STFU". I know I've been guilty of spouting off like that in the past but you're one of the "cool dudes" here and it just floored me.

I'm not trying to condescend or patronize or anything like that. Believe me, I know how it feels when you think someone is walking all over your favorite piece of tech. But I honestly don't think Hiev meant any offense.

And I do agree with your position: Ugly but functional syntax can be found in any programming language. Programming is both a skill and an art; a skill that can always be improved and an art that can never be mastered.

Yeah you're right that I over reacted. I was reading way too much into his comments (which is ironic because I accused him off doing the same. Eep)
