The actual solutions have been around for a long time. MS has not done very much original work, sure, there are some original features, however most of them are natural extensitions of designs that were established years ago. They also build ontop of previous technology using generic solutions, for example a proxy that allows distrubuted .net objects to communicate with COM objects. In time, I want to emphasise the solutions that are being used instead of the marketing hype. Learn how to program, and don't just follow technology solutions blindly. You need to understand what is happening underneath.
    wow, I've seen this before. You posted this EXACT same paragraph elsewhere. are you just copying and pasting from some common troll source?

    The only source that I pasted from is the source of truth, knowledge, justice, and the LORD God!

    Personally I don't care what you use. I have my views and I expressed them and than I responded to attacks. You can feel whatever you want. I live in a free country, and I'm a freedom fighter. If you don't like it than that's too bad.

    I don't have an official title, as I'm an intern, but have been so for 4 years with the same company. However, I am the sole developer/programmer for my company and have produced several apps for them.. I'm sad to say none of them have been in C or C++, but my title, per se, remains. This time next year, ask me the same question. My title will most likely read "Chief Hardware/Software Engineer" or something like that.

    not a programmer. self taught hobbyist who can't remember his/her password for this board so my posts end up behind a censor card now. Oh, well, I'll fix that later.

    Been officially programming for a living for almost 2 years. Started programming about a year & a half before that.

    Hey All!

    I figured since my vector thread isn't getting any attention, which drives me deeperinto the chaos of index variables, or maybe my book's author has just screwed it up in his examples?

    I'm a C++ Aspiring Coder of 10months.

    I used to be a windows NT/2000 Admin, after XP came out I decided Mcirosoft could shove it, and proved that they're not a monopoly after all, since I use Linux, run a Geforce 3, and use an AMD processor so I guess I'm all sorts of rebellious...

    But on a serious note, I don't hate windows users, or coders, hate is too strong a word...
    I wish Open Source were the dominant Software strategy because like so many others I happen to think technology should never be bound for the socioeconomically able but for every engaged mind.

    Its an ethical thing for me, There is something inherently noble about giving away technology, and knowledge for the greater good.

    Profit generation has no such nobility, regardless of beautifully executed commercials showing smiles and sunshine...

    I laugh at microsoft's "EULA". I don't think you windows guys are meat assembly line workers it takes creativity to code, however even you guys have to admit that you're constrained to if anything the strategic decisions MS makes regarding software architecture. I know that linux coders have a world of options that windows coders just don't have. I would never code for windows, if only to create more apps exclusive to unix.

    But I don't hate windows coders, or users, or think the coders are not REAL coders. The users are a different story entirely, I think they ARE driving a car with an automatic transmission, the car controls the shifting, and the power delivery. Linux is analogous to a manual transmission, though it has auto modes, I always drive stick.

    Did I mention it simply doesn't crash?

    While that may be true, neither myself nor my management has found anything that we need/want to do that writing for a Window's environment has limited us from implementing.

    Maybe we're just to simple to realize it.

    Either that, or (in honor of Troll_King) brainwashed.

    The experimental hardware we develop works better on a MS OS (sad but true), our clients use MS OS's and we try produce a product we can sell.

    If we don't sell, I don't get paid.

    So I write WIN32 API apps.....would you like fries with that, TK?
