comment Should I keep all my class definitions in the same class library?
Class_Library != Single_File. Some people use it like that. You may have a Class_Library with several files, and each files, may have one or more related classes, interfaces, enumerations, etc.

comment Java vs. C# - Productivity perspective
For several reasons I prefer C# over Java, yet, I prefer the "migrated" Java To C# libraries over the native C#, usually, better designed, tested & applied in real world.

comment Adding to the System namespace in C#
-1. No, System or System.Core or System.* are NOT your libraries, no mather how much useful and similar your utility classes are. A <MyCompany>.System.* namespace is a better solution.

comment Should I put utility methods inside a class?
As @Sean McSomething said, it depends on the programming language and related programming enviroment, you are using. In case of doubt, I prefer namespaced global procedural functions, over static class functions, over prefixed global functions, and avoid as possible, global procedural non prefixed functions.

comment Few big libraries or many small libraries?
It's also depend on how your programming and related programming enviroment, manages libraries and related concepts such libraries, packages, namespace, and alike ...

Agree. altought, its common that Utility Libraries are more applied to inner layers.

comment Should a software company have a dedicated team for research and/or utility libraries?
Several companies I work for, had unleast one person that was in charge of managing utility libraries, where each developer could suggest contributions. Most managers where working part time.

comment Do you maintain your own utilitiy library
It's a good question, but I prefer "How do you maintain or manage your own utility libraries".

comment What is the simplest translation file format for a user to edit and for a program to parse?
@Dan Ross gettext is good and there are many translations for many programming languages. But, wheter plural or singuler or gender, you may want to split a single word in several categories.

comment UML Class Diagram: How can I represent “orthogonal” generalizations (or multi-inheritence)?
(+1) Agree, the "backup" feature "sounds" more like composition ...

(+1) For clarifying the "UML does not have any problem with multiple inheritance ...", very common mistake !!!

comment Why does C have no competitors in low level stuff?
I heard that Apple, originally used Object and Class Oriented Pascal ("Mac Pascal") before changing to "Objective C"

comment Why use getters only as opposed to marking things final?
I remember some C-alike language, that support properties with accesor functions, that have syntax different from functions & fields ...

comment What’s the opposite of abstraction?
@jhocking The brakes & the accelerator of a car are opposites, yet, also complements. Cheers.

comment What's the difference between syntax and semantics?
@Keith Thompson: You missed the point. Is a semantics or syntax question, not a C standards question. The standard is right, but, my answer was directed to explain a concept, not, following literally, a standard. It's like a "Captain Kirk" v.s. "Dr Spock" question. Cheers;-)
