• Was Linux Mint. Lately Cinnamon on stock ubuntu. Trying Pop!OS next.  Sometimes XFCE in more constrained environment.  But can make do with screen and emacs on ever a no-desktop server in a pinch.

  • Python on a real computer (not an i-Thing, tablet or chromebook.  Preferably under linux.  Also arduino and rPi hackery would go over well with that age group.

     

  • Hey, I recently (re)installed Debian on my main PC, and I’m having a hard time finding a desktop environment that I like. Do any of you guys run *nix on home computers, and if so, what DE do you use? I ran MATE and later Xfce for a while, but got extremely frustrated with them when they phased out GTK+2. Right now I’m running Fluxbox.

  • As I said, most of the problems I have with OOP would go away if people stopped abusing them. There are quite a few languages, though, that actively punish programmers for not complying with what the language designers think are “best practice”. I would like Java a lot better if it didn’t adamently insist that everything is a noun. I would like it…[Read more]

  • I would argue that the issue isn’t the language per se, it is who is using it and how. C is a great language — a limited number of commands, expressive, powerful. But even great programmers make massive mistakes with it, which is how we end up with SSL defects that threaten to take down every secured site on the Interwebs. Java is safer in many…[Read more]

  • The question for me shouldn’t be “what languages do you like”, but “what languages do you not hate”. I have a very minimalist, “all software sucks” philosophy about programming. If you’re familiar with any of the main developers behind Plan 9, then you probably already know exactly what I’m talking about.

    I’ll try to come on here more often, I’m about to hit the hay for the night but I like where you’re coming from on this!

  • Hi Will,

    thanks for linking to that talk, it’s amazing. Haven’t seen it before. We clearly think along similar lines.

    I have a feeling DAOs might be helpful in the context of the NETWORKED model, I just haven’t figured out how exactly. Let’s figure this out as we move along.
