Re: Are Windows NT/successors really inherently stable syste

Please also confirm if Microsoft(R) Windows(R) NT and successors are really inherently stable systems? There currently is no such thing as an inherently stable system. If you want to have an inherently stable system, you'd have to formally prove the system to be crash-free, and this hasn't been don...

There is, actually. That's what C++ is all about.

It might have happened that code compiled with older g++ and doesn't anymore. However, given that g++ has been implementing virtually all of ISO C++ for years now, this only means that your code was broken _before_ g++ refused to compile it.

Then it is C++ standard in GCC changes in each version of the compiler you need rewrite allot code getting it compile with new compiler and it will not longer work with older compiler. We've been through this already, but i'll happily repeat this again: There has been no ABI change in g++ since 3.4...

L4 kernel is just another hypervisor build around para virtualisation. I wonder where you picked that up. Almost needless to say that it's as wrong as it could possibly be. L4 used to be a microkernel's name; nowadays, when you say L4, you usually refer to that microkernel's syscall API, for which ...

Die ganzen Diskussionen um Startmenüs und dergleichen sind sinnlos, da das Haupthindernis ganz woanders liegt, nämlich in der Mausschubserei. Wenn ich eine Applikation starten will, dann drücke ich Alt-F2 und gebe den Namen meiner Applikation ein und fertig (nein, das funktioniert nicht unter Window...

Mind you the best easter egg I know of owns to Linux. http://www.eeggs.com/items/1037.html The easter egg mentioned there has nothing to do with Linux. In fact, Linux (the kernel) doesn't support printers at all, it only supports parallel ports, USB ports etc., and it's up to regular programs, such...

oiaohm, it's useless to discuss with you. You keep bullshitting about C++'s vtables even though I've kept telling you that they're optional, and that shows just how ignorant you are. OOP was the step away from speggitti code. The truly unmaintainable stack of hell. That definitely proves that you di...

Matthias I would say that its equal foolishness. Lot of C++ coders talk about it has a cure all. Sorry to say its not. I've never said it is. But as a matter of fact, C++ helps to build more reliable software and get more done in less time. C interfaces don't change between complier. Wrong. There a...

Yet again, i'm coming to the conclusion that most C programmers don't actually know anything about C++ but instead choose to cultivate their prejudice of C++ being slow and useless. Most of our devs are C++ programmers, so that little dig isn't gonna work. This is just my personal Experience, and e...

There's a lot of overhead associated with C++ because of the stuff it adds onto C. Some are because of its object orientated nature and some are because of new features like exception handling (new compared to C). Entering a try block is free. Actually C++ was designed so that you don't pay for wha...

Auch ich halte es nicht für realistisch, dass sich ReactOS je durchsetzen wird. Bei UNIX-artigen Systemen ist so etwas schon eher möglich, einfach weil es traditionell viele UNIX-Ahnliche gibt (Die BSDs, die System V UNIXe, Linux und weitere), so dass die Entwickler es eh gewohnt sind, auf die Porta...

Listen. All I know is that when I used IE, Trend Micro Anti Spyware found security risks in cookies which were from various ad servers and such, where as this didn't occur using Firefox. That's because Firefox stores the cookies in a format that Trend Micro Anti Spyware can't handle. Also, you can ...
