You think that in 20 years that good programming practices considered today will be used. There will be so much memory; some people say that it is safe to not check the malloc and see if there is enought memory. Also they say make the source look good. I have seen some poorly written code to make it look good. Do you think that computers will keep getting faster, and the programming practices will get worse at taught. I will always try to write the most efficient code(most people here would). But if the practices get worse and we aren't taking advantage of the new computing speed, why even try to have faster computers; just program the same.
