comment Why do programmers use or recommend Mac OS X?
I'm still not convinced on the "hardware" point. Apple's buying power doesn't really go into passing on lower prices to consumers - it goes into subsidizing the cost of almost giving the OS away (if you're running on their overpriced hardware).

comment Simulating simultaneous entities
Why do you think that procedurally walking all entities doesn't do as you expect? It's straightforward to manage simultaneity by just having all entities react to the state at the start of the timestep, regardless of what other entities have had their current timestep simulated yet.

comment How to solve conflicts with another programmer
@Tio: Get him involved earlier. Involve him in the early discussions, sell him on the benefits, let him hear and evaluate what other people see as the downsides.

@Tio: He does sound like he's being unreasonable, then. Regardless, you're not his direct senior, and as such it's really not your place to be pushing changes over his objections. This is somewhere where you need to be getting your boss involved, rather than trying to make huge waves yourself.

@Tio: It sounds like you're discussing stuff, he's voicing objections, and then you're basically ignoring him and pressing forward with your ideas anyway. What objections does he have to these things your propose?

comment Including a GPL-license library in a commercial Java program
@Earlz: The real problem is that selling a product (as opposed to selling a service) doesn't really work in the long-term when anyone you sell it to can duplicate and re-sell it, as much as they like, with minimal effort. Note that most open-source software transactions are really about selling support contracts.
