    It made an impression that most of the people started with C the moved to C++ and other language. I personally started with C++ but eventually I totally switched to C. With the only exception of Objective C which is a superset of C

    ooo Obj-C. I'm having some problems getting GCC to compile Objective-C code and I have no idea why. I link the libs correctly (I think).

    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    I took an OOP class that was suppose to be tought in Java for obvious reasons but the professor didn't know java so we had to do the whole class in C. If someone ever makes me write OOP in C ever again in my life I will slit their throat then my own.
    Hmm

    OOP in C!?!?!
    Ouch. I second the slitting idea.

    Yes. I agree with you. I started with Java, then followed by some scripting languages, classic ASP, PHP4, etc.

    I'm away from computer stuffs for more than a year. Now Im learning C. It's really a nightmare. All the new concepts starts coming in (which I've taken for granted. Remember how easy java manipulate strings? Remember how easy can one accomplish stuffs using PHP?)

    If one started with C, I guess one would start to appreciate other newer languages
