I'm reading "A class-based reflective minimal kernel"

... do you ever get the feeling like you understand something perfectly and don't really understand it, at the same time? what does it mean?

i can even rougly imagine how this would be implemented on assembly level, but it still feels like... i don't know. it seems too straightforward and simple, i guess, so i suspect i'm not understanding it properly, since it can't be that simple...?

    yeah, i like the idea and principle and philosophy and ui behind it, but i severely dislike the syntax, and i dislike that it doesn't run natively on normal hardware, so my crazy unrealistic dream is making my own os/platform like it, except with more of a c-like/js-like syntax, and natively running... which is the reason why i'm reading that thing =D

    @Midnight-shcode while I actually like the syntax, I like your idea.

    @100110111 probably just a matter of preference. for many people, i would guess. i think those two things are the main reason why it's not the "soon to be the most used os in the world"

    One of my first shitposts on here was against pharo.

    Fuck if I can remember why, but I sure did sound angry in the rant.

    @Wisecrack tried to find it. Couldn’t spot it and it didn’t come up in search (which I’m not entirely convinced isn’t broken anyway)
