  1. I actually use a ROG gaming laptop for development. Compilers love it...
  2. Why those? There are better (faster, less annoying) languages. Like C and Lisp. Android development is done in Kotlin now. The company I work for tried C# (Xamarin) and I had a short interference with Delphi's Android support, but Kotlin is what Google recommends.
  3. I warmly recommend Practical Common Lisp as a rough overview about programming (focused on the language Common Lisp): http://www.gigamonkeys.com/book/
  4. Technically, a ternary operator (not tertiary ) is an implicit "if" statement, so I'm not sure whether it would also violate the rules. The code should not need one anyway, if the input is guaranteed to have exactly two words.
  5. You should note that you expect us to pay for it. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/snapit/9phgbmz7rbzx
  6. Now this is a funny point made in a discussion about Linux. Each Linux distribution comes with a compiler. Linux users who don't want to know about this kind of stuff should probably stick with Windows and/or macOS. (Nothing's wrong with that, honestly.) ./configure ; make ; make install - although lately, other build systems have stepped in, such as CMake and Meson and whatever. I guess there are ways to automatize that. Anyway: How many of the "available packages" are still maintained and an actual application, not just a library which itself is of no further use to the users?
  7. Available third-party packages count as a distribution's packages as well? In this case, all distributions have (roughly) the same amount of available software.
  8. Message me when you're finally planning the "10 reasons why OpenBSD is better" video.
  9. The Arch Linux website lists less that 11,000 packages - considering all platforms: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/ Gentoo has almost twice as many.
  10. Doing other people's homework for free is dumb.
  11. Also, there are Solaris (OpenIndiana) and BSD (FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, ...) which all come with Python as well.
  12. Yup. On the PC, everything non-Windows is a niche. (Assuming we agree that Macs are not PCs.) On mobile, hmm... Android is a large part of the smartphone ecosystem, but it is debateable whether it counts as "a Linux", given that is is basically a combination of the NetBSD userland and the Java Virtual Machine, coupled with a kernel that was based on Linux.
