comment Why was the AT&T assembly syntax designed this way?
ATT code is the output of a compiler which was the input to the assembler. It was not intended to be written by programmers directly. Intel assembly is intended for programmers to use directly.

comment Why was the AT&T assembly syntax designed this way?
One thing to remember is that this was created to be used by a compiler and not for human consumption in the same way Intel assembly is.

comment Is directly using Make considered obsolete?
Every piece of available software on my FreeBSD systems, both desktop and servers, has a Makefile that's started by 'make'. No. 'make' is not obsolete.

comment (jQuery) What is wrong with methods such as .append?
@cbojar Ok. I got lost between his first sentence and the topic because I started thinking he was saying jQuery inserts HTML without using the DOM.

comment (jQuery) What is wrong with methods such as .append?
@cbojar Which led to my question, how does one inject HTML into a web page without using the DOM?

comment (jQuery) What is wrong with methods such as .append?
I'm questioning your statement. You are saying jQuery doesn't use the DOM when injecting HTML into a web page but that's impossible.

comment (jQuery) What is wrong with methods such as .append?
@MainMa You said "you can avoid injecting HTML through jQuery" and I asked how does jQuery avoid the DOM when inserting HTML into the DOM. I'm not asking about speed.

comment Why don't developers make installation wizards on linux?
@iveqy I just realized we've gotten off topic. This has nothing to do with what I originally said and that you still don't see such wizards is further evidence of what I said.

comment Why don't developers make installation wizards on linux?
@iveqy Any text config file will give you far more abilities than any installation "wizard" ever will. If such wizards could do better, they would exist, but they don't.
