comment Reason for (post/pre) increment operator in Java or C#
@DocBrown: x[i++]=0 is idiomatic in C, but I disagree that it's idiomatic in C# and Java. How often you encounter such phrases, unless you work in engineering/mathematics domain, which, I presume, consitutes no more than 1% of Java/C# code in the wild?

comment Reason for (post/pre) increment operator in Java or C#
Just for the record: I was "the people which made the statements" mentioned in the question. I never claimed that these operators are useless in Java (or C#), I just claimed that the benefit they bring is much smaller than in C (and C++), and that, arguably, the drawbacks and caveats outweigh that benefit. I'd also like to know why exactly were they included in Java, and especially C#, which had better opportunity for hindsight.

comment What are some non-MS languages that can write xlsx (Excel 2007+) documents efficiently?
Umm, this may be a starting point: msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/… msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/gg278316.aspx and also Google for "SpreadsheetML"

comment Will Java catch up with C#?
@Shamit: No, the question was about the languages. He mentioned another his question about which platform he should focus on.

comment How much sense does it make for a veteran .Net developer to move to ROR professionally?
Great answer. I myself was almost exclusively working in .NET from 2001 till 2008, and moved to Ruby (not just Rails), although I guess I would now have bigger salary if I stayed with .NET. But the salary difference wasn't as big as the difference in joy of programming. :) However, I see .NET is moving in good direction recently, both with C# improvements, and things as .NET MVC. I also consider F# a nice way to improve .NET career.

comment Does Mono have a place in the enterprise world?
@Konrad: That's true for recent C# versions (they started off about the same, but it evolves way faster than Java). Unfortunately, my experience tells me that enterprises rarely pick language on its merits. On the other hand, both .NET and JVM offer alternative languages, arguably better designed than both C# and Java, so I wouldn't really favor one over another based on that.
