Why C Is Not My Favourite Programming Language

I got about half way through this article before I realised I’m really not interested in it. If I was coding a demo or something that was performance critical then I’d use C/C++ possibly with a dash of ASM but otherwise, give me the garbage collecting, lots of data types, memory checking, higher level languages any day. 🙂

This stuff used to interest me greatly. I’d chaff and sneer at the way “high level languages” did all the work of looking after very serious errors or memory leaks at the expense of performance. Now of course I bask in the reflected glow of a world without bounds 🙂
And of course bore my friends to death, ahem, that too. Please move on, nothing else to see here!
