...and then it turned out they actually did a much better job 😂
In all honesty, I don't use C# much (and I know C# isn't the same as .NET), but I quite like the language. I guess I'm a bit of a fan of Anders Hejlsberg's work.
@fribbledom considering C# and .NET got funded to maintain Microsoft's monopoly, I never had interest in them. Probably much better for Windows programmers.
A lot of technologies get blamed due to silver bullet chasing and poor engineers. I also work in deeply embedded and saw poorly conceived Java products, but I also saw poorly conceived C, C++, and assembly language projects; none of which were the language's fault.
Of course, Java took over from Pascal in CS studies, so dump of new grads.
