    Why? What would that change?

    You've shown several times that you don't have a lot of experience in the software engineering field (from the total lack of professionalism displayed in this thread to your questionable understanding of what RSS is even supposed to mean), don't let your youthful enthusiasm and zealotry cloud your judgement, keep an open mind and accept that maybe, maybe, there are other people posting here that know more than you do. Generally speaking, of course.

    I've always seen slashdot report news on Windows as well as Mac and unix/linux. The stories you read on slashdot are not in the least bit unfair and or biased. The comments from users however could seem that way.

    Ok, now I get it. Your persona was a sophisticated ruse to trick us all into believeing you are actually for real.

    We're not falling for that.

    If you seperate the reporting slashdot does from the responses from it's users, I think that like me, you could consider slashdot one of the most fair IT news sites on the internet.

    I'll have some of what you're smoking, thanks.

    I think a site like slashdot or another platform free and non-biased news site would be a great place to conduct such a poll.

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

    No, but it raises the question, thus begging for an answer Smiley

    You mean linux is a toy and unix is not. That's swell. Very clever.

    And true!

    When you'll go out in the real world, you'll find out very quickly that if an organization wants to deploy a Unix server for some reason, they'll go with Solaris, HP-UX or AIX. Linux doesn't even enter the discussion. The reason why that happens is left as an excercise to the reader.

    It's also pretty funny how you assume that people here have no experience with Unix (note the correct capitalization, we're not talking about toys here).

    I loathe using Media Player, because it tries to be 'hip' and tries to integrate the Internet (and ads!) into everything, even if I'm just trying to play a simple local video file.

    Do you have any example of this? Because it doesn't happen on ANY of my video files.

    And, of course, the JVM doesn't have a GC, right?

    But yeah, let's compare the .NET framework vs Sun's JVM memory usage. I have the numbers (from my machine) right in front of me, so what are yours?


    I could only give you numbers from mono vs. java on my machine.
    The CLR you are using is closed source so it can't be recompiled for my platform.

    Well, what are those numbers?

    Or is this simply FUD and the amount taken up is the same (plus some wrapper code) as if the application was written in win32?  Or MFC?

    No, there's definitely a fixed (and well known) overhead, but I want to hear exactly how much, compared to Sun's JVM, from the other posters here.
