Re: official support for more scripting languages in gnome needed

  This discussion makes me want to change to KDE.
  WHY ?

  Because everytime someone proposes something that isn't C
it gets flammed with 'Oh I don't want you to impose that on me'

  For God sake, he was only proposing more support to languages
like Perl, Python and so on. But NO, it isn't C so it isn't good.
I know how it is to be flammed like this, from time to time, I
watch people being flammed just because they want to code GNOME
applications in C++, like myself.

  KDE people don't suffer from this problem, I know this because
I watch their mailling lists also.

  Why it is so hard to be open to other languages ?


Does anybody even READ the post before they flame it? The original post wasn't "proposing more support" it proposed making Gnome DEPEND on perl, python and other scripting languages. Code in whatever language you want to, AbiWord (part of Gnome Office) uses C++. But if I don't want to run perl, don't try to force me to. I have reasons for this, I'm not just being anal. If you make gnome-core depend on perl (I don't care about the devel environment, just runtime) then I will be forced to go elsewhere. The upcoming e17 release is looking mighty attractive . . . . . .
