    Looks like I'll be making a new VPS template for the early adopters :)

    I love conversations like this because all I have to do is reach for another few dozen of the egregious faults I've found in Ubuntu over the last few days.

    Which one'll we use, let me see, oh yes:

    I'll be bright enough to install Ubuntu when I don't want a computer that prints documents on printers anymore!

    I'll happily send you a scan of the page of gibberish we got when we tried :)

    Don't we already have C# for this...?:eyebrow: I mean there's already two open-source projects to make an OS/kernel entirely from C# for christ's sake - is there really any need for this??? LOL.

    Looks interesting though doesn't look very appealing to me until it matures a bit more.

    I think the biggest problem with c# is that your tied to .net which some people mightn't like.

    I can see why it is so fast, some features have been removed to benefit the simplicity of the language. Still looks interesting though.

    Give me C++ or give me death. (Actually, I've sold my soul to VB for a fair few projects).

    Another new language, woohoo. If you like it, good for you, I'll just take the compiled binary blob and stick to what I know, thanks.

    QFT.
    I'll stick to Java and Perl, thanks.
    If I want a something that looks like the ******* offspring of two languages but offers no real advantage over either then I'll use Ruby.

    perhaps Google needs to learn to google the names of their projects before announcing them:
    Google nicked my programming name via The INQ
    sure, the guy hadn't trademarked the name yet, but as there's already a book published, this will lead to confusion down the line at the very least
