comment What's so bad about pointers in C++?
@MartinBeckett a good designer doesn't accept an if, you can't say "i have done this beautiful design but you have to use it as i said" this will not be a good design, period. A good design has to drive the application on its own.

comment Compilable modern alternatives to C/C++
@gbjbaanb try to compile with Visual Studio and with MinGW under Windows and good luck with that :| try also to convince a person that gives you a compiled library compiled with one of this tools that doesn't know nothing about ABIs that he is wrong and he should give you the source of that library or learn how to recompile and give the right specs. the horror, sometimes.

comment Compilable modern alternatives to C/C++
personally i would like to add the fact that C++ has a big downside: the lack of a standard ABI and sometimes this is a big downside when you are looking for cross-platform compatibility.

comment Does C# give you “less rope to hang yourself” than C++?
I think that if you have an idea about what is the design of an application, what the boundaries of your application are supposed to be in terms of semantics and syntax, you will realize that C# is one the popular "modern" solution for people that just want pre-packed design solutions, that's why C# is "easier" to manage, because not only offer an high level approach but also some design solutions ready to be used or to be integrated in a bigger project.

comment CPU recommendation for learning multiprocessor programming
@JörgWMittag probably almost no-one has heard of this languages, and for this reason i specify "major language", i can't imagine who actually use this for real stuff, probably Erlang and Go are the ones who are really popular in their fields but i can't define Erlang or Go as major languages. Looks like you are not used to actually read the answers here before commenting it. If this are major languages i can't define languages like C, C++, C#, Java and Python. please avoid showing off the stuff that you know and downvoting at random and just write your answer if you aim to be useful.

comment CPU recommendation for learning multiprocessor programming
@GratianLup if you are forced to the CPU world the main patents for X86 belongs to Intel, you can't find a better CPU than the ones that Intel made; if you consider the whole APU the things maybe can be different, but for just the CPU, go for an iCore.

comment CPU recommendation for learning multiprocessor programming
@JohnR.Strohm if you say so, by the way it's not like everyone on the planet have an airplane in the garden, probably you are not that impartial and compared to this, even the assembly is way more popular since every bootloader or kernel has small parts written in Assembly.
