it inherits many of the flaws, and isn't any different from "unix". oh, sure, on some unixes and linux distros you can pop in a cd and it'll automount. big advance there.
on lisp machines, you could perform "edit and continue" with any piece of the code. that means you could change the source code to a running daemon, save/compile just the changed function(s)
, and the running app will automatically use the new changes. can we do that in linux yet?
show me a unix debugging environment that matches visual c++'s. you probably can't. does it surprise you to know that 15 years ago unix development environments for c/c++ existed that did what vc++ does, but they died because no one used them? unix people: "oh, we're happy with vi and make, we don't need those tools!". think of that the next time you use gdb.
