    Dennis instead Gosling. And for game programers, Carmack.

    I think Linus should shave his head bald too, it would help with the air cooling and transpiration. Who knows what he could accomplish!

    We were lucky enough to have Bjarne come to our college campus once to talk to us about C++. It was the first language I learnt so it has a special place in my heart. I asked him about the future of C++ against the other new Object Oriented languages coming up. Oh boy, what he then said made me laugh. (not the exact words, but a summary of it)
    "The new languages keep coming and they all claim to be the best. I read about Java when it came out, but it was a pile of crap"

    @floatright dammit, you lucky ^^

    C++ was my first language as well and I still love it. But what I don't understand: why did he say that Java *was* a pile of crap? It still is

    @ianertson he died within same period when Steve Jobs died. Guess who got most press coverage. John McCarthy as well.
