comment Delphi to Java change - career advice
Things were kinda rough with Delphi for a few years after Borland dropped the ball, but it's by no means dead, and it's been making quite a comeback lately. Don't give up on it so easily.

comment What is the greatest design flaw you have faced in any programming language?
@Matthieu: Umm... why does that matter? Concatenation isn't commutative (like addition is), but the addition of two strings is nonsensical so no one thinks of it that way. You're inventing a problem where none exists.

comment What is the greatest design flaw you have faced in any programming language?
@Barry: Not really. + makes a lot of sense as a string concatenation operator in a strongly typed language. The problem is that Javascript uses it but is not strongly typed.

comment Why is there still case sensitivity in some programming languages?
@Thorbjørn: You need more if you want to preserve the original token name, for example for accurate error reporting or for RTTI generation.

comment Decompilers - Myth or Fact?
@Steve Jackson: This is not even a problem that can be solved with a serious encryption scheme, because somewhere that binary has to be decrypted into ordinary machine code for the CPU to be able to read it.

Duplicate of stackoverflow.com/questions/607322/…, which I unfortunately can't flag because it's on SO, not Programmers.
