Kids these days…

This morning, I read an interesting article (just before it succumbed to slashdotting) called ’13 reasons why Ruby, Python and the gang will push Java to die… of old age.’ Nothing earth-shattering in it, but one of the author’s points was that successful languages tend to be backed by large companies – to which someone commented:

C++ wasn’t sponsored by any big company.

Really? AT&T doesn’t count as a big company? ‘Ma Bell’? Bell Labs? Maybe not so much now, but man – back in the day…

Alas, my attempt at delivering snark to target was stymied by this:

If you are the owner of this website, you may need to upgrade to a more advanced plan.

(A max of 10 concurrent requests? yeesh… I’m surprised I was even able to read the posting.) Anyway, I’m sure that by now someone has managed to get through and point this out. And if no one has, well… there’s always tomorrow – or six hours from now when the slashdotting hordes have moved on to their next… wait… sorry… what’s that?

Ooooh, shiny.

*ahem* Where were we? Oh yeah: You call that music? Turn that noise off! Now get off my lawn, before I call the police!

    S’okay – I suppose it’s pretty much geek dick-swinging.
