Re:GNOME - dependency hell / speed of OOP in C

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 19, 2007 05:51 PM
Good OOP Code in C is through-out possible. However, gnome is not the case of it.

Proper oop code of C is much faster than C++ will ever be. And you my dear, don't seem to have any idea how long it takes to compile kde.

Hands down still, as the product, kde kicks gnome onto the ground and makes a footmark on it's back.

But don't critisize the language that it's written on, blame the programmers that didn't do a good job at it. Even the linux kernel in a pseudo OOP in C, but written correctly and kicks ass more than c++ ever could.
