comment Why do programmers use or recommend Mac OS X?
@Display Name, its not completely wrong. You need a mac to legally create iPhone/iPad apps. It can be done illegally using a Hackintosh or virtual machine but speaking from experience, its not worth the time and effort.

comment Why do programmers use or recommend Mac OS X?
I've had xCode crash on me numerous times. It is a good IDE but overall I think netbeans is better. Have you ever tried SciTE text editor? I always use it for development, its extremely light weight and IMO is a great example of how simplicity is genius.

I have never understood why people say this, the iPhone has a great UI but OSx is very average. It pays more attention to detail but I don't think its better than Ubuntu.

@aqua Actually full time iPhone app developers don't have a choice. You need a Mac to develop iPhone apps. Its just one of many ways Apple squeeze money out of people.

Yea, I see what you mean. Hmm, Is there much benefit in using that proc object over a plain old closure?

comment What do you wish language designers paid attention to?
Agreed, The Java API site is an excellent asset. Its great having a standard format for creating API documentation also. The productivity gains from using an IDE with built in support for analyzing JavaDoc (netbeans) is amazing. Although I have a horrible memory so it probably benefits me more than others.

@Lennart "After ten years, a typo has never caused a hard to debug error", Its never happened to me either but it still seems so plausible :o
