    Hopefully in 30 years we'll have a serious attempt at intelligent artificial intelligence, and the art of determining the correct instructions to issue to a processing unit will be performed by another processing unit. At least I hope it's headed at least close to that direction.
    I hope not. Haven't you ever seen the Terminator?

    This is how it will work:

    C -> C+ | C++ -> C+++ | C# -> C## | Java -> Gava | ASM -> ASML (Assembly-Line language ) | COBOL Fortran -> CoTran | XML HTML DHTML -> DHXTML | CoTran DHXTML -> CoTrMHXML |
    C+ C+++ C## -> C+*# | C+*# Gava CoTrMHXML -> GaCoTrC+*MLXH# | GaCoTrC+*MLXH# ASML -> GaCoTrC+*MLXH#ASM | GaCoTrC+*MLXH#ASM - > God's Language

    - SirCrono6

    P.S. >GaCoTrC+*MLXH#ASM< God, who would program in that?

    From C to shining C++!

    Great graphics, sounds, algorithms, AI, pathfinding, visual effects, cutscenes, etc., etc. do NOT make a good game.

    can you imagine the instructions? arrgh!
    Code:
    <main ( 1024bit_int argArg, trigger onMouseOver() );>
    <functioncall> SomeFunction(); </functioncall>
    </main>

    ::code in 30 years::
    Code:
    computer,  I want you to work.
    I get a compiler error it says syntax error. Did I forget a comma or something? Plz I need it for homework

    Just think the people on this board would be gods in coding for a language that simple. I'd be smart and all my code would work

    [QUOTE Many functions could be performed using, instead, a discrete set of four values or so much better, yes? ie using an op-amp to add two or more voltage levels each having perhaps 4 or 16 or 256 discrete voltage levels, and with such an accurately ideal op-amp I believe it would be acceptable. Why is this not?[/QUOTE]

    Hell why dont we just resurect the analog computer? That worked well... didnt it?


    What about quantum computers, no one hass mentioned programming them if they ever exist. Someone will need to do it if we are going to fight skynet and have a chance.

    The concept behind digital technology is that analog values are rectified into a set of discrete states, in our case a binary system. I am just wondering why it was not quantized to a four-valued or 8-valued system instead. You misaddressed my suggestion, sorry to be unclear.

    Linux will be recognized as being superior (sorry bludstayne)
    That's alright. You never know, FreeBSD may just die in the next 30 years. So may Linux. I'm not the type that follows their "software religion" where people don't switch software just because they're used to one software, even though the other is superior.

    I see the death of M$, at least in the OS world. They may still make other stuffs. They just wouldn't be as large a company, and Billy-bob would still consider them the leader of technology

    From my point of view, M$ may die in other stuff, but for OS world, they can't die until we all go to Mars

    MS will be dead and burried in 30 years, everyone will use some form of a UNIX OS and ther'ell probably be a few new langunges which will be even better then the onces we have today.
    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    Actually, I think Microsoft will still be around. Maybe may not be as dominant, but I don't think they will go away for good.

    Personally, I like Microsoft products, and I even chose Microsoft products over Opensource ones, IF they are better (OpenOffice.org is great and all, but I'll stick to MS Office).

    Hopefully, with the rise of Linux and UNIX onto the desktop, Microsoft will lower its prices substantially. I don't want to see Linux take over the desktop, but hopefully by adding some form of competition Microsoft will lower its prices for the consumer. Thats the change I'm hoping for in 30 years.
