comment Why do game developers prefer Windows?
Sorry, I did give up gedit in the end. I now use gvim and I'm much happier :)

comment What is a good use case for scala?
@Giorgio, I was [half] joking, don't read too much into my answer. I know every paradigm has its legitimate uses. I respect that. What I don't respect are the posers and fad-followers, and FP seems to attract a disproportionately high number of these, for whatever reason (again, in my experience). I know a couple of people who are FP die hards who endlessly mentally masturbate thinking of monads and bask in their superiority, but don't actually do anything. Come on, you must know some (and yes, I am aware that idiots come in any programming language, not limited to FP)

-3? Come on, you can do better. @Giorgio, I didn't mention Java at all, IMO it also sucks :)

comment How long can you be out of the MS market before it affects your career
+1. 9 years for me (my own company - we did make Windows products but developed on Linux and then compiled on Windows and Mac), and even less MS for me in the foreseeable future (new job at Linux-mostly company)

Honestly, I'd be more worried about the danger of being confined to the proprietary MS world than the other way around... MS is getting less relevant every day.

comment I'm scared for my technical phone interview for an internship!
sure, I agree. But I think in a reasonable interview you're expected to know the things you're supposed to know cold, Googling it doesn't cut it in that case. Of course an interviewer can ask you "trivia" and in that case it would be OK. In a recent interview I was doing Python on a whiteboard and I couldn't remember a couple of details. I just asked the interviewer. I don't think that affected my "score" at all, in fact I ended up hired.

Take it easy. They know you're 19 and you're applying for an internship, not for a senior position. Senior as they may be, they'll ask questions appropriate for your level, not theirs.

+1 for being honest, -1 for googling. "I don't know but I can use Google" doesn't cut it, IMHO.

comment What's a nice explanation for pointers?
+1 I have no idea why people think pointers are hard or mysterious.
