Xojo: A Linux development suite that doesn't really support Linux

Filed under
Development
GNU
Linux

If a company is going to support Linux... it needs to actually freaking support Linux.

In one of my past lives, I was a software developer. And even though I no longer code for a living, I still find tinkering with various languages, IDEs, and frameworks more fun than I probably should. Truth be told, I consider playing with a new development environment to be a bit of a hoot. (Yes. I just wrote “bit of a hoot.” That's how confident I am in my own masculinity.)

I'm also not the kind of guy to be prejudiced for – or against – any particular language. Python? Awesome. C++? Tons of fun (in an “I-like-to-hurt-myself” kind of way). Pascal, BASIC, Smalltalk and JavaScript? All delightful. I like 'em all... for the most part.

Reviews

There have been a several interesting new hardware announcements from the Raspberry Pi Foundation this year. Sometimes I wonder how they do it all - with so much involvement in education, development of new hardware and software, and the many Pi user groups and events. It really is quite impressive.

Going on for a while has been llgo as a Go front-end for LLVM written in Go. This LLVM Go compiler front-end works on 64-bit Linux and works for most code-bases and now the developers are willing to relicense it under the LLVM license and move it upstream as an official LLVM sub-project.

Those interested in LLVM for Go can find the details via this mailing list thread where there's been generally favorable feedback thus far.
