    Bye bye C, hello Java

    I have been offered a job by my neighbor programming in Java after I take a semester of it in college. So now I'll be reading and working in Java books until January instead of my C books. I'll still be taking C next semester though. Geez, I'm going to be swamped in programming languages (C and Java). But wouldn't you guys do the same if offered a part-time job making $12 an hour to program after class (which would lead to a full time job for alot more cash after college)?

    Dude, I really like it so far. It's so much easier to learn than C/C++.

    I've heard of it but don't really know what it means.

    There is a reason it's easier... don't give in to the dark side.

    Use the source, Luke.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I support nvoigt 100% all the way. There definately is a reason. But, I can't totally put Java down. After all, there is a reason why it is as popular (not AS popular as C, though) as it is, though. It is great for some web developing. But, I must still and will always go with C.

    Java beans are sort of like plugins for java. You do things
    with them.

    It would be better to use C# instead of Java because Microsoft is blocking Java and C# has all Java's features plus more features.
    I compile code with:
    Visual Studio.NET beta2

    Its not cross-platform. Thats a huge factor for corporate deployment. Trust me i know from experience.......

    Of course it will be cross platform. It will be available for Linux the day it is released for windows.

    It does run on Linux. The compiler is being developed and C# is an open standard. Also MS Windows is the fastest growing corporate OS. Unix isn't big enough.

    WHOA Witch King, back up a sec.. Unix is one of the quickest growing server platforms on the market and it's threatening to take over down the road. People are sick of the viruses and the instability with M$...

    all hail the *nix revolution..
