Windows Sucks, Right? It does doesn't it?

Does Windows really suck? Yes. Is Windows also awesomesauce? Yes. Are both these statements and answers contradictions? Yes .. and No. Wait, what? I don’t understand the question. Does Windows suck, yes or no? It depends.

IMHO:

  • Yes, Windows sucks as an operating system for developing in Unix-based programming languages

  • Yes, Windows has the best general Desktop user experience (of all current systems)

So, getting to the point, context-matters. Disgruntled old IRC channel loiterers love to make generalizations about everything from politics to operating systems, regex use-cases to procedural versus object-oriented programming.

This is a cautionary tale for newbies, listen and do as you’re told, but also, don’t.

NOT MY FATHER'S ITERATION...

When developing software (or deliverables in general) ... it is a good practice to give your finished product an identifier distinguishing it from other like products (or even different variations of the same product).

The version number 0.0.0 could be (is usually) interpreted as version.edition.iteration, whereas the …
