Jesus, that's one of the most poorly implemented sites I've ever seen. I tried going through the questions (after switching to my non-preferred browser), but by only the second one, I couldn't take the "poorly-reinvented-UI-elements inside of a pointlessly TEENY miniature little popup" any more and gave up. And even outside of that, there's that "schizophrenic frames" layout and lines covering the text. Not worth it. God that site's horrid.

I have to agree, I've not encountered anything quite so claustrophobic. I got 3 questions in before I started wishing I had been more strict in my definition of what it is to "know" a language (I picked all the ones I knew as well as C++ or better, and as my C++fu is lacking it was about 1/3 of the full list ><). I recall doing a similarly themed survey some time ago, but it was much easier to respond to, perhaps the sense of deja-vu also put me off. A...

One of the survey questions was: I often write things in this language with the intent of rewriting them in something else later I think C++ got 76% of the vote on this one. Why would you ever write something in C++ with the intent of rewriting it in something else later? What are they planning on rewriting it in, Assembly? If you just wanted something quick and dirty, I doubt you would pick C++ for your first go round. Craig

I don't get that, either.

Maybe they wanted to rewrite it D later but had to write in C++ at the time because their boss made them or because they needed a library from C++ that would be too difficult to use with D by simply adding a few bindings (e.g. a GUI library)? Still, that is a bit weird. - Jonathan M Davis
