    C++ may have a rough patch ahead, but C isn't going for a long time.

    That doesn't help my situation, i'm not going down to C.
    Use
    writing software in C++ is like driving rivets into steel beam with a toothpick.
    writing haskell makes your life easier:
    reverse (p (6*9)) where p x|x==0=""|True=chr (48+z): p y where (y,z)=divMod x 13
    To throw away OOP for low level languages is myopia, to keep OOP is hyperopia. To throw away OOP for a high level language is insight.

    Why not? Other than the obvious reasons

    I use both C and C++ for different things.

    I've just got Win 2000 and I love it...hasn't crashed yet, all hardware got installed correctly, no driver problems at all. I didn't need any driver disks!

    If you don't have it, buy it now!! I take back everything bitching I ever said about MS...

    I love Win2k otherwise, so I guess I'm going to have to get a new printer and scanner

    Well the fact that it won't even install on my computer doesn't help...

    Although when you've got compatible hardware, yeah, it rocks (I use it across the room but that's a bit pointless considering the computer with the hi-fi and the modem and the fast processor is over here)

    It has to be said I had a bit of a bad time just getting it to install. The Win9x setups work in "DOS" mode, from a bootable disk. But the win2k setup doesn't. I eventually tried makeboot.exe which made 4 special bootdisks, but there is absolutely no mention of it in the installation book...it just says "Insert CD and Windows 2000 Setup should run". I was like..."err, how does it do that with a blank HDD?!"

    It's a bootable CD - you need to set your BIOS to boot from it though. Mine also came with a set of boot floppies in case the BIOS didn't support booting from CD.

    I have yet to see a legitimate Windows 2000 CD. And yes, I am running Windows 2000.

    unfortunately, the cd drive is a bootable device. I had to make the floppies myself!

    If it's a bootable device then why was there a problem?

    Or was it a typo?
