  • ...I'd rephrase your inquiry to "What 5 things annoy you most about your favorite language ?"

    The net effect is the same, but is less confrontational. "Hate" tends to raise barriers of the religous sort; but we can all admit to occasionally being annoyed by even our favorite languages, things, even friends and family (tho its best not to admit the latter in public...).

    • I agree with you. Hate is too strong a word.
      • Nope, I definitely meant hate. I used that word on purpose. I don't care what annoys you, I care about what you hate about your language.

        • What I meant to say is that many people might just say that 'I dont hate anything, but there are few things which I dont like of language X'. It is arguably safe to say that if someone can say 5 things they hate of, they know the language well. But it is not safe to say that if someone can't say 5 things they 'hate' of, then they are either a beginner or can't pull in the big dollars using it. I remember once someone asked Tomek Czajka a similar question, and he said he has got nothing that he hate of c++ but he had many points which he didn't like of; and he advised beginners to start java instead of c++. You just can't say he doesn't know c++ well(he's one of the best programmers in the world), and you cant say he is not capable of pulling in big dollars using it(he's made more than 135 thousand USD just from programming competitions).
