Well my mum says your programming language has no manners

Yeah… it’s the same old thing, C# developers think Java sucks, Java developers promptly run off into a corner to cry and masturbate.

Meanwhile, C++ developers tell the C# developers they’re idiots who have everything done for them, C# devs respond with a middle finger and/or fuck you.

OK, sorry, I’m biased, I hate Java, but nonetheless, you can get into an arguement very easily nowadays about why C#/Java/Ruby/Perl is or isn’t shit (except for Ruby and Perl, they’re shit coz I say so.)

But the thing is, whilst I very well COULD produce something in C++ that was made for the .net platform, I don’t want to because I don’t need to.

If performance is critical, or I just don’t want to end up with a series of P/Invokes the size of a cancerous testicle then I will opt for C/C++ and if not, then the managed platform wins the day because it saves me a lot of time.

There are of course exceptions, Java is the devil because its so bloody slow… the tradeoff between developer time and CPU time is inexcusable, you can usually do the same thing in C# at almost the same development time cost with a lesser CPU cost (usually dammit)

So, next time you want to get pissy about a programming language l suggest you stop and think… and if anyone asks, I was joking about Java, my trading platform is written in Java and it survives.
Not perl though, perl is shit.
