@fribbledom 50 people, 50/50. very close race!
@fribbledom Well if those are the only two choices ... did I miss the Scala bracket? That's my favourite JVM language (although I haven't tried Kotlin yet)
@djsumdog Scala lost… against Perl 👀: https://mastodon.social/@fribbledom/103563546915013724
@fribbledom NO JAVA
@fribbledom Java was a mighty weapon against Microsoft. So much so they had to try to clone it as .NET.
...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.
@fribbledom This is also not fair since you can't really do clojure without java.
I know, I know. Relax, it's all just a silly game.
@fribbledom NO NO NO WHY GOD NO THIS DOESN'T MAKE SENSE THE NUMBERS MUST BE WRONG!!
