Reddit: Linux and programming

Saturday 6th of June 2015 06:11:46 AM

Personally i believe that if you dont know jack about Linux, you can't call yourself a programmer.

To create a safe and efficient piece of code, you need basic OS knowledge to know how your program is executed. I can't se how you can get this experience on Windows...

Yesterday, in a post on this subreddit, I have been met with downvotes and bad comments when I mentioned my point of view.

Don't you fellow redditors agree with my assumption about Linux and programming?

Please comment with a reason.
