    It is not about theoretical concepts such as virtual inheritance and nomads

      That’s a weird dig, since it seems aimed half at C++ and half at Haskell? Haskell sure, it’s the usual punching bag for people who want to claim to be “practical”, but C++ is (far) more popular than Go in practical, industry usage.

      1. 3

        “Practical” is not the same as “popular in practical usage”. As Pike said in Less is exponentially more,

        There’s this idea about “programming in the large” and somehow C++ and Java own that domain. I believe that’s just a historical accident, or perhaps an industrial accident.

        I wonder how long it will take them to correct the spelling.

        1. 8

          Maybe a strong understanding of nomads helps when handling process migration?

          More seriously, I kinda dislike seeing TIOBE “news” here, etc.

          Please don’t pay attention to TIOBE for determining language popularity. It is literally languages ranked by how many links come up when you Google the language.
