2 hours of FUD! Evil! OMG you should be banned!
(Be sure to jump straight to "Enter the Programmer")
Enter the Programmer starts at about the 49th minute.
Well, this is an impressive jump on at least two levels (and I haven't finished watching the whole thing). First, the command line w/o the commandlets looks to be as full featured as VMS or Unix. Pipes, aliases, redirection.... all there. Good Stuff. If they haven't fixed the copy and move commands.... nevermind.
Second, this is a very interesting use of reflection. I would like to get my hands on that laptop and play with it some. Try to figure out the boundaries and other potential uses. I have some nagging questions like why and how is a process an object, are parts of the os oop now, does this only work for .NET code, what apps can be piped and/or redirected, can't someone use reflection to reverse engineer or hack your code(!), etc. But for now, I won't hate... just congratulate. Piping like that into the spreadsheet was pretty damn cool. More good stuff.
I'll finish watching the whole thing tommorow and see what else I can find out.
Before I go.... that unix, sql, framework commentary was a bit, um, off and strange (maybe off the cuff?). But the Java comment was funny....
Well, um, Java has.. some.. support for reflection....
...but the nice thing about .net is the multiple languages

<OMG! Why did I say that... Bill is going to fire my ass for admiting that....>
<the other guy: WTF is that dumbass saying?! I have a family! My kids! My dreams!>
...but the nice thing about .net is the multiple languages....
<phew! uh, that was too close.... I hope they can't see that spot on my pants>
<the other guy: oh thank God! What's that smell?>
<both: haha... that was a good one... our own VB programmers still don't get OOP much less reflection>
/me wakes up
OMG!!! Chams, no more VB in here - NONE!
VB is a Windows business application language technology
, or whatever the hell Wolf calls it, it
belongs in the Windows folder. Not here!
