Sorry if this is the wrong section. I'm new here and did not see a topic for Misc programming topics and its not in the FAQ one. Its either specifically this language or specifically not programming at all along with no Java sections. I picked C since thats the OS language I am assuming. Unix and Windows is C I believe and not C++. Thats not what I am asking though.
I'm a beginner programmer. I'm learning C for a few reasons including its the OS language. One of my teachers at college thinks Java is the worlds best language and can do anything. I dont remember how it came up but someone said that Java can not make an OS. He said otherwise and because no one could specifically say why Java cant do that, he wins the argument. I really need to know why :P
Can someone enlighten me on this?
