I’d guess you have never actually given it a good go. Most people who hold this opinion have always held this opinion (or heard it somewhere) and maybe hacked around with it in the past but tried to treat it like their primary language. Once you figure out which parts are “the good parts” and which parts to stay away from it is a really amazing, or at least interesting, expressive language.

Re: Perfect If they fix the scrollbars
Obviously people have their preferences but I've never understood people's dislike for minimal scroll bars. I can't remember ever actually using the mouse to drag a scroll bar up and down the page. They are plenty big enough to see where you are in the page plus usually increase in size once you start rolling the wheel or hitting j or k or page up/down or whatever. Personally I think a big chunky scroll bar looks fugly and takes precious screen real estate. There are other DEs for people who want the windows 95 look.

to go with steam community and nvidia twitch streaming. Who's jumping on the bandwagon next? "Norton antivirus game stream hub"
I genuinely love Unity. I used mint for a few years on my work box, probably out of some snobbish misconceptions about Ubuntu proper. Made the switch at 14.04.
Re: Not everybody needs to or should learn how to program
The book "The Elements Of Computing Systems" is a pretty incredible resource for gaining a basic understanding of how a computer works and sets a good foundation for any computing related study. You go from connecting NAND gates to building a CPU and memory (which get emulated). You then write an assembler, a compiler, a vm, and finally an OS. You can then start writing programs for this system. Pretty cool.
Currently reading "Building Micro services" and the author states that if building a bridge were like software development, when we were halfway to the other bank we would realise it was made of sand, not granite, and we would be told were actually building a railway bridge rather than a footbridge. Made me chuckle

Re: People still use Ruby On Rails?
I believe a lot of them returned to PHP since it is having somewhat of a renaissance at the moment.
Astronaut got talent.
I have recently been looking at getting a new laptop and I was looking at the Dell website a week or two ago and I am nearly certain that I saw a banner citing spearfish as a reason not to consider rivals products.

Or just medicine if you like.
Your looking for the browser.
Re: Yeah - no ...
I'm a stupid kid born in the (early) 80s and I like flat colours, minimal gui design and unity. It's a good job there is freedom of choice so I can have my snazzy modern stupid/broken design and you can have your boring more productive one.
Re: >Geolocation API, possibly the most useful HTML API out there
At least it only asks for your location and not your entire contact list, text message history, microphone access, calendar as per most native apps
Just ordered it.
If it's rubbish I plan to try hacking around with it. At that price point, if it ends up in a drawer/bin/charity shop after a week I won't be too upset.
Re: Windows 8 isn't a good comparison
"Win8 was damn close to free at launch - $39.99/£24.99 - for the Pro version. Still didn't sell, hence actually free this time."
Yep, I moved from Win 7 Home Premium to win 8 Pro for the figure you quote. I am now on 10 Pro. Not bad really. Still, not as good value as the other option on GRUB.
Re: And thus we have
I genuinely think I am the only person on earth who actually likes Unity.
Re: The Apple logo is an apple...
Just read this this week (Do androids dream...) very good, although I haven't got a clue what happened at the end.
Make it free
...as in beer.
Win8 pro (on release at least) was a quarter of the price of win7. That was what stirred me into reaching for my wallet and purchasing...and then promptly regretting it.
Good move valve.
Time to get the padsaw and cat6 out.

I feel their pain. Same thing happens to me on KSP all the time.

Reminds me of a quote out of Permutation City by Greg Egan about creating a consciousness using an abacus.
