Here are reasons not to use Swift:>> Apple Fanboys
I'm reading up on apple's new C language, Swift. It can return from a function multiple values with any combination of data types.That is all. I'm sold!
Here are reasons not to use Swift:>> Mac Lock.>> Fake or psuedo Linux port.>> Apple and it's agressive abuse of patents.>> Apple is the enemy of Open Source. >> iJails>> Richard Stallman hates Apple the most. >> Apple Fanboys
I really hate to see total mythology in programming discussions.
You are probably using a Chrome Browser? Chrome was built with Apples open-source webkit, which has become the foundation of 70% of the internet (chrome, opera, safari, and nearly every mobile browser).
It's Mac only right now and has loads of bugs and issues but it's fun.
If that's your idea of fun, I can only assume you're a masochist.
The Swift programming language is the successor of Objective-C, I think it's not a C-family member but a C++-family member.It has been developed to update the old-fashioned Obj-C and to result more easy and clear in use than it.I didn't try it yet but voices on its performances are constrasting: someone says that it's faster than Obj-C, someone else says it's slower...The only thing that it's clear is that it's an Apple-only language, due to the fact that it will run only on MAC/iOS.
