in reply to
(OT) Where is programming headed?
Claiming that "C is obsolete" and that the future belongs to OO languages strikes
me as more than a little absurd.
And yet, there are still people that code in FORTRAN
That reminds me that, in the age of word processing,
Internet, etc, paper is obsolete, that you don't need
telephone since there is email, that motor cars have
made bicycles redundant and useless, that the steam
engine has announced the doom of horse-driven carriages
and sail boats, (and of course, as you can see in any
vacation resorts, horses and sails are clearly a thing
of the distant past).
