comment Is Intellisense faster in Visual Studio 2012 compared to Visual Studio 2010 for C++ projects?
A better question would be if it works 100% of the time. With VS2010 the Intellisense turns off completely in some larger projects. An no /reset, deletion of .sdf/.suo files help. Then again it's probably C++ issue.

comment Is modern C++ replacing C#? Is Microsoft pushing developers to adopt C++?
@Telastyn: It might be a good idea to look for a better workplace. The C++ experts that say C++ is not productive or not the first choice for most tasks are not C++ experts. Really. They probably don't use libraries and still use C like style, with bad overall architecture.

comment Compiling OpenGL Assembly Language (ARB) assembly code
@Fr34K: Yeah, resorting to assembly for better cross platform/product compatibility is exactly the wrong way to approach the problem. You want higher abstraction level, not lower.

comment Is Ubuntu workable as a laptop for an IT consultant?
It's ok. The only thing I would say, is to choose Mint, which is Ubuntu minus the fugly Unity.

comment Compilable modern alternatives to C/C++
@KonradRudolph: name hiding is trivial really, never ran into this issue over 10+ years. ADL, you can create some problems with it, but again, hasn't been an issue in my career, const correctness is actually very neat, once you use it from ground up. It works, what else do you need? Ok, there are fancy const * const * const constructs, but if you write code like that, it's your problem. So what exactly in Effective C++ scared you so much?

comment Compilable modern alternatives to C/C++
@jalf: Programming is not easy, if you can write a Java program after reading how syntax works, you're doing it wrong, you shouldn't be in this profession! Programmer has to know what happens on all levels once he writes foo.DoStuff() anything else and 1) your program has a bug 2) it's a maintenance/extensibility nightmare.

Runtime polymorphism (virtual) + compile time polymorphism (templates) + STL. And it allows you to do any of that stuff. And it's really easy. I don't know why people complain that it's hard. Just read a few books, like Effective C++, C++ Programming and Practice, everything will clear up.
