[ILUG-BOM] [OT] Interesting Conversation
Wed Sep 4 08:03:08 IST 2002
I had a conversation with my B.E. comp friend about Linux.
Basically he is doing a project in VC++
fr:So you are doing project in Linux right ?
me:yeah. C programming in Linux
fr:Oh,does Linux have VB,VC ?
fr:hmm... so will my VC programs run on Linux?
fr:Then what's the use of Linux?
I was stupified. (OK Windows programs can b emulated but still
they cannot 'run' right ?)
This is from a guy who had Operating Systems,System
Programming,Microprocessor in his syllabus
I guess the whole syllabus is 'DOS' oriented.
ppl still cannot digest the fact that there are many other compilers other
than the 'standard' Turbo C++ 3.0
Also I've observed that this is the general awareness/attitude of Comp.
ppl abt Linux.
I can only imagine what it must be like for Arts/Commerce/ ppl to
understand what is Linux
