The Freedom inherent in using C

Name: Anonymous 2017-12-28 14:19

Any C(and to lesser extent C++) code has the following qualities:
1.Stealing the source code without hiring programmer who "knows the code" allows tons of security and design bugs slip by.(hiring more pajeets won't solve it).

2.C based software allows itself to be hacked and compromised, jailbroken or bypassed. This places an individual above the company, creating a vast landscape of security services, hacking and malware.

3.C and C++ allow any ugly hacks or performance optimizations you desire.

Why are you hating freedom?

This is basically a logical continuation of the kind of naive, anarchist logic open sores tries to shove down my throat while they scream ``GPL virus''.

The fuck this means?

2.C based software allows itself to be hacked and compromised, jailbroken or bypassed.
Don't be a shitty programmer.

3.C and C++ allow any ugly hacks or performance optimizations you desire.
So? That's a good thing.

There's literally nothing wrong with having that freedom.

It means they put the bugs and bad design in there intentionally. Heartbleed and Shellshock were put there on purpose. They're actually 100x programmers who use Lisp and Haskell in their spare time. They only write C as a joke to take down The Man.

What about the freedom to write code, that runs faster than the code written in any other language? What about the freedom of accessing hardware and system libraries, without any FFI overhead?

you mean hand tuned assembly?

But, I’m pretty sure that, of itself, gets to the crux of the freedesktop.org, RedHat ignorance regarding interoperability, portability and most of all system security. UNIX and C would not have become so vastly important and popular and copied in the 80’s if not for the the fact that they addressed those issues at every turn.

, and the few ``bad'' things that it contains have not been implemented anyway.

Don't change these.
