re: Hating on languages you don't use VIEW POST


I think it's perfectly normal to hate languages for the effect they have on the world, in terms of software that is around us, what languages new projects choose, what skills and concepts developers learn.

For example, why not hate Go for taking developers and projects that would otherwise have used Rust? If there are pain points that make people choose Go for server and cli projects where performance isn't absolutely critical, these should be addressed to make Rust a better language/ecosystem, not resorting to a language with garbage collection, no generics, and weird package management.

Also Java. And I'm not talking about today when it's popular to hate, I mean back when it was the hypest.
