|Huh. Google are making a new programming language. |
Open source (of course) and unavailable on Windows (wtf?!). Anyone tried it? As usual, the Google hype makes it sound too perfect.
Google is weird. It's doing everything. I wouldn't be suprised to find they are making a Google OS, open source and free. Where the hell do they get the money for this? Just ads?
|I have been hearing about this from various sources, may give it a shot when not swamped with work.|
They are making a Google OS.
Technically Android sort of already counts as one as well though.
I didn't know it wasn't available on Windows though, makes me love Google with a big throbbing... It will probably be ported to Windows eventually though, I bet plenty of people will kick up a fuss about it all.
|People don't care about Google, or it's new language.|
Now that I've gotten that out of the way, what's the point of the language? I just looked at the front page, but nothing I saw jumped out at me as being special or unique. It's just Managed Language #5234243232443654567.
"Fun" is a completely subjective term so it's hardly a convincing metric to try it out.
And since it's unavailable on Windows, I have no reason to try it out.
My bet's on a joke.
|I found their arguments compelling (not to mention the names behind it impressive, these are basically the people who invented Unix), and gave it a try for a few days. I have to admit I got bored with it very quickly. I backslide here and then, though.|

|I get the impression that|
closely resembles the mess inside Postline scripts when it comes to management of race conditions, where I have similar locking and unlocking functions.
I also get the impression that it wouldn't simplify stuff by much...
|ah didn't learn anything!|

|I don't get why people keep making new languages. Everyone knows Lisp is the perfect language and cannot be surpassed.|
