comment Is learning C# as a first language a mistake?
I'd like to point out that the phrasing isn't "don't learn C#", it's "C# and ASP.NET" (emphasis added). I'm not a C# programmer, but .NET and the CLR are a fine platform to start learning on.

comment Why do websites have to ask language and country when the browser can tell them that?
Sorry, but the example is a bit too trivial.

That's an edge case, and my original intention wasn't about IP addresses.

So basically, the accept-language information in the header and geolocation via IP address can conflict. So now my opinion is that websites prioritize the accept-language data. Also, companies might want to say "look at all this work we put into internationalizing our website, aren't we special?"
