What the fuck is this piece of shit called Ubuntu? I was writing an automation tool on my local PC (ArchLinux) in c++ 17 (c++1z or whatever). Finished it today. Working and compiling so everything is fine. Went to my server, git clone, make.

Okay some errors because I havent installed my networking libs yet. So I installed them.

Make.

Error because I was using a c++ feature only available in c++ 17. But wtf. I told g++ I wanted to compile with c++ 17 support. I mean... On arch it compiled fine. On centOS it at least told me that it doesn't know c++1z (it was some really old centOS). BUT JUST TELLING ME ITS BECAUSE I SUCK AT PROGRAMMING?? THAT IS SO NOT OKAY. MY CODE IS LEGIT ISO C++ 17. FUCK UBUNTU. Installing Arch on my server now because I can't handle this shit anymore...

    The feature is called "nested namespace definitions" btw and even the visual studio compiler supports it 🤔

    Latest is not always the best and stable.

    @Linux sadly that is true. But even when I had Ubuntu on my PC it managed to destroy itself after updating from 16.10 to 17.04. I won't be using that much tools anyways. Only apache2 server for (yes I'm serious) a static HTML site and my selfmade tool. The thing is that I don't want to rewrite it so I can compile it with c++ 14 because it would just be too much work right now. I totally agree that the latest isn't always the best/stable but I know the risk and take snapshots every day + week

    Ad long as you a aware :)
    Also, updating to another release in Ubuntu does break stuff lol.
    Anyway, Apache is a good choice :)

    @Linux nope I'm the only one using the page. Sometimes I'm hosting big (really big) files (100GB+) for my classmates and luckily its limited by the ISP and not apache so I don't care 😛

    Or you could just upgrade gcc on the server. Ubuntu's main repos don't really keep up to date all that well.
