Watch it, you could get mobbed by angry C fans for saying anything positive about C++ and mentioning it in the same context as Linus :p
Have a ++ though, I absolutely agree
python332169dYou forgot git. Linus made git
Linux is a horribly flawed hobbyist system. Ive experienced enough fucked up shit - like an ext 2 fs not boundhecking meaning that you could wipe you entire server by filling a file
C++ is a very bad programming language, promoting inefficient programming. Its exception system is horrendously low, its standard library contains so many utilities that force you to code inefficiently. To top it off, modern cpp compilers suck arse....
IMHO both of those inventions mark the time perios where devs started becoming lazy, thus creating the need for terrabyte hdds, gigaherz processors and gpus
C was made initially as a portable language that could easily be ported. Dont think that it was made to do everyrhing
Linux was initially a Minix clone, not meant to be used anywhere. Yes, it has so many minix desigb decisiosn that are bad for perf that its hilarious to watch people who think that linux is cool

"...devs started becoming lazy, thus creating the need for terabyte HDDs, gigahertz processors, and GPUs"
What. Those were done because of consumer demand, because people wanted to be able to do increasing amounts of stuff with their computers. Companies made that stuff to compete with each other and to enable better things for their consumers so that said folks would throw money at them. What would you have done - kept everyone on ancient hardware tech running hyper-optimized code that could just print text to a terminal and show basic 8-bit graphics?
