Why do they keep inventing new programming languages? Well to give people who study compilers a job.

The 3D printing app is pretty sweet, not just need a 3D printer XD

I heard that it only prints the Windows logo. Is that true?

The languages don't vanish when a new is introduced. Its merely a new option for others to use if they wish. Its important to understand who is the intended user and what goals your after.

In the case of Wolfram they write software for scientists and academic use for people who don't necessarily have computer science/engineering backgrounds.

Languages like Ada, Pascal, Fortran all still exist and the specifications are being updated over time. Like I said before its about understanding your problem and finding a language that fits the problem. If your happy with a language because of your competence then stick with it. There are compilers for every much every language that was ever used.

True enough. I have a tendency to be a drama queen in my post sometimes. Much of the frustration is squarely targeted at Microsoft and Windows 8.

No offense to Mr. Stephan Wolf. But I somehow doubt he has achieved the rockstar status that Einstein has achieved. You don't even have to use his first name for people to realize who you are talking about.


It's Wolfram you dingbat. No he is not as well known as Einstein, but definitely more than you seem to be giving him credit for. Surely you've heard of Wolfram Alpha?

I stated the problems I have with new programming languages. Lay-people shouldn't be writing software. Just like they shouldn't be doing brain-surgery. Programming is inherently complex. It can only ever be so simple. The simpler a programming language is the less powerful and flexible it will be to the developer.

I am okay with languages "evolving" over time to address the requirements of the modern era in which we leave. But I think some people try to hard to re-invent the wheel every 10 years. They have this philosophy in their mind that tells them to panic if we don't re-invent the wheel every 10 years. What Microsoft did with Windows 8 is a tragedy.

Jesus. How can you with clear conscience quote Einstein and not know who Stephen Wolfram is?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Wolfram

He's not exactly obscure. He's a pretty well-known scientist, even if controversial in some areas, and that's even without Mathematica and Wolfram Alpha.

This is exactly what we need. Refine and keep improving the old languages? LOL. Bah Humbug. Who wants to do that?

Let's all be like Microsoft and scrap 20 years of perfecting something every 10 years. That way we can slap a ******* "New and Improved" sticker on the box and sell it to retards who actually believe that marketing hype.

Can't wait for a new programming language. I am starting to salivate at the thought.

Oh btw, who the ******** is Stephen Wolfe? Was that his name? Never heard of the guy. He's even less relevant than John Carmack.

I don't see your problem with new programming languages. New ones exist to fill specialty roles were previous ones were weak. Some exist to make it easier for lay-people to code or define what they need. Some exist for better security, rapid development, object-oriented features, and so on. Any good developer should be evaluating languages to see if it better fits their project.

Have you not heard of software like Mathematica.
