Go Version 1 Released

Cenuij Re:Rube Googleberg Machines? (186 comments)

Please re-read the quote, there is no claim of execution performance. The quote was entirely about the time it takes for a proficient hacker to write a program in the three languages.

Go Version 1 Released

Cenuij Re:Rube Googleberg Machines? (186 comments)

I don't think you fully grok what they have achieved. Google employs only a handful of people who work on Go, and probably not all them work full time on it (though maybe that's not true lately in the last release cycle).Let me give you a quote from an accomplished (hint, you use his code every day) C & C++ hacker on using Go:

"In my experience Go is probably 5-10x faster than C or C++. I estimate that programs that take me half an hour to write in Go would take me about 2½ hours in C and 5 hours in C++."

Then when you only have to wait about 10 seconds or so for the whole Go std library *and* all your own libs and binaries to build, you can see it's value over waiting for large C++ projects (of which Google has many) to build.

So write in Go and import the C libs.

And what you consider non trivial must be very different from the rest of the world if all you ever do is reach for python.

Cenuij Re:Go has some good ideas (186 comments)

The style, or your preference for a particular style, is not important in the least. What's important is the consistency. Really... *nobody* cares what style *you* prefer.

Cenuij Re:Wake me (186 comments)

What's the point in that? Go is very expressive. Just write in Go instead of Python.

OpenSUSE 11.2 released

Cenuij More accurately, your mirror is slow (1 comments)

download.opensuse.org dynamically redirects your request using MirrorBrain so it's probably more accurate to say that the mirror geographically closest to your IP address is slow. As always, the fastest way to get openSUSE is via metalink but of course this needs a metalink capable downloader such as Aria2 or KGet. Pick your preferred iso image from here http://software.opensuse.org/112/en and select the metalink option.

OpenSUSE 11.0 Released

Cenuij Re:Probably not (301 comments)

YaST package management is lightning fast now, I'll wager faster than any apt based tool. How YAST/Zypper became fast Package management using zypper, is probably faster and more memory efficient than any other linux package management tool. How efficient zypper really is openSUSE is a now generations ahead in package management. In my not so humble opinion.
