Some Cray folk refer to the SGI-owned era as “The Occupation”. I wonder what they’ll call this... (I missed being acquired by HP by two months.)

I have many questions. (My manager brought this to the office today.)

For many years now I have referred to Linux as “A twisty maze of little distros, all different.” As a (now retired) tools developer, it was maddening.

Not all of F2018 is there yet, and indeed the F18 ERROR STOP enhancements are not there. Many other things are, though. Yes, VS15 was dropped - VS19 support coming, I am told.

Intel's been busy! Lots of new F2018 goodies in their latest beta compiler (no teams yet, though) - check it out.

rachel, I am so sorry you were put through this - reading your thread made me madder with each new post. Thank you for telling your story as it may help others know that they are not alone in having bad managers.

This is why we can't have nice things. Please read the whole thread. Unfortunately, bad managers are everywhere. 😡

Sometimes the C++ compiler prints something and I feel like I'm trying to talk to Lassie. What is it, Lassie. Is something wrong, Lassie. Is Timmy okay. What the heck are you trying to communicate to me you fucking dog I don't speak Endless Barking

Donald Knuth's books were my "bible" as I learned about programming, and he has contributed so much to the field over the years. I can't overstate his importance to programmers everywhere.

Misleading - the price you selectively showed was for the Professional Edition that includes many more tools. The Fortran-only price is $2149/2449 (1 seat floating.) Single user is $849/$999.

Which vendor is that? Intel is far cheaper according to current prices. You also asked for two compilers and floating, which is priced assuming 4-5 users per seat. gfortran is free, but is not even full F2003 and has few active developers.
