One thing thats really been bugging me lately is Python, it just keeps growing.
Goto a Linux room/website and say anything that dont praise Xfree to the highest, you get plenty of flames on how it is in fact perfect and shoulndt be changed. Mention a couple more guis would be nice and you will practicly be hung.
But yet a new scripting "language" comes around and its every where! Why?
People practicly want GUIs gone(they refuse to use them, there too usefull and dont make them feel special), but yet there all for Python.
I have no idea whats up with this.
Any Python people here? Im hopinh would could straighten me out alittle, i havnt found anything good at all so far.
And ill leave this post woth some of my favorite lines.
""Idiot's just can't use it right" is no excuse to tolerate something being more tedious than necessary."
"You use graphics and windows? Ugh, the bloat! The overhead! I used to only program using the linux console. No pesky bloated bitmapped graphics there, no sir-e-bob! But then I realized I was wasting countless processor cycles redrawing a 2d grid of characters. That's when I stepped up to a truly responsive system - the line editor! Its the stuff, man! I can get 1,400,000 frames per second on my Pentium4/3200mhz with Geforce4 Pro Titanium Ultra. It is RESPONSIVE!!!"
"By all means, don't dare voice complaint that the car you currently drive is inefficient -don't dare to dream of a faster, smarter, more efficient machine. "
"The recent facination (last five years) with media player authors to make "pretty" interfaces that immediately grab a user's interest is a great example. The UIs are far less usable, are inconsistent, are frequiently slower and buggy...yet authors keep pumping out these damned bitmap interfaces to DVD players, movie file players, audio file players, etc."
