  • Very descriptive term for an operating system. Ubuntu should be the open source operating system for the Purchasing of Things.

    Pity they dropped the only architecture I was interested in

  • I had the misfortune of having to use it last year on a tmote sky. Nearly every piece of hardware it supports is obsolete, also the API is incredibly poorly documented. Most of their documentation consists of functions listed with no description. Gah!!
  • I find it pretty weired that they use C instead of a well defined subset of C++ for a modern framework.

    I really doubt that from an academic stanpoint the term framework even applies, it looks like a set of APIs and libraries to me. Or does the linux kernel quallify as a framework, too?

    Anyway I don't use frameworks/libraries/languages that are neither oo nor functional, my time is me to valuable.

      It's designed to run on microcontrollers with kilobytes of RAM. C++ and OO are possible, but C tends to fit better.

      Not functional??? Have you ever even programmed in C?

      • Yes I have, and your question simply shows you don't know what "functional" means.

        Hint: go to wikipedia and look for "functional programming language", you won't find C there.
