    Not yet, knock on wood. The big companies we do work with are very good about testing and procedures, generally.
Question: Do you keep in touch with any of the old #mpeg3 efnet ops crew? Like that crazy porn king swed, Mouse? We enjoyed helping you beta test!

    Not really, no! But they were awesome.
Question: If you had to start Reaper from scratch today, would you still choose C? Why/why not?
Asked by Lokasenna (184.68.216.x) on May 29 2019, 4:56pm
Reply on May 29 2019, 6:23pm:
    C++, you mean? Absolutely. There are plenty of design decisions that I made that have aged poorly, however the choice of language is not one of those.
Question: Have you ever used the software Unity 3D?

    I played with it for about 5m once a few years ago, but I'd say "no" because I didn't learn anything ;)
Question: What would happen if Mark Zuckerberg developed REAPER and you developed Facebook?

    See above!
Question: Which programming language is your favorite; Lua or Python?
Asked by MS_from_Sweden (77.218.240.x) on May 23 2019, 3:34pm
Reply on May 23 2019, 5:10pm:
    I know Lua better so I'd probably go that route, but I'm not particularly in favor of either...
Question: What was your knowledge level, when you first time realized, that you can work as a programmer? (did you know OOP, multiple languages, etc) I'm thinking about changing profession, programmers in my city have 2-3x bigger salaries, than i have on my main job currently, lol

    I had aspirations but didn't ever really get a job before making Winamp... I think maybe I sent a resume or two out (seem to remember something to crack dot com)... so I guess I thought I was somewhat qualified, but not enough to really try to interview places.
Question: Have you ever tried free running / parkour?
Asked by Abhi (103.61.89.x) on May 20 2019, 6:00pm
Reply on May 21 2019, 1:59am:
    a long time ago I wanted to do parkour, and I was reading various guides and one of the prerequisites was to run. so I started running. and that proved to be both challenging and entertaining enough...
Question: Is programming knowledge needed for mastering REAPER software fully? Or a person with no knowledge of programming can master it as well?
Asked by Abhi (103.66.142.x) on May 20 2019, 2:18pm
Reply on May 21 2019, 2:00am:
    I don't think you need to know how to program, but like anything relating to computers, being able to program can let you do more things with less effort...
Question: SWELL Linux: It looks like that gnome eats WM_SYSCOMMAND SC_CLOSE (ALT+F4) even if I put that shortcut in my custom MainProcessMessage. Do I have to do something special for that case to work in Linux?
Asked by Gio (94.66.58.x) on May 19 2019, 12:25pm
Reply on May 21 2019, 2:01am:
    Hmm SWELL doesn't implement SC_CLOSE at all. The key might be getting eaten by the window manager, you might have to change the assignment at that level (what desktop environment are you using?)
Question: Which language has been used to make askjf.com?

Question: Which Linux distro you love the most? Is it possible to run all Windows softwares in Linux via WINE? How much stable are they? Do they run just like they run in Windows? If performance is not an issue, and they run stable, I will permanently switch to one of the Linux distro, maybe, Ubuntu or Elementary OS (looks beautiful)? I am not a programmer. Is Linux good OS for normal home users?
Asked by Abhi (59.99.117.x) on May 18 2019, 7:43am
Reply on May 21 2019, 2:02am:
    I am used to Debian but it's not really a preference just a familiarity. Ubuntu is mostly the same. You can run some stuff with WINE, sure, but if your main goal is to run Windows software, not sure if it's ideal for that.
Question: Do you like the new all-black theme in Windows 10 1804 update? Is it as good as MacOS' dark theme? I never used Mac so I don't know, but watched videos in YouTube. Mac's black theme looks better for me.

    Haven't used it.

    B, I guess? (not a close friend, just an alpaca I met one time who was very nice). but I'd like C too.
Question: Is it better to install 32 bit Windows rather than 64 bit in 4 GB RAM laptop? Does 32 bit Windows give better performance in this case? I have read that at least 6 GB RAM is efficient for 64 bit Windows. 64 bit is for more than 3.5 GB RAM but still it isn't efficient to use it in computers smaller than 6 GB RAM.
Asked by Abhi (117.207.140.x) on May 15 2019, 4:13pm
Reply on May 15 2019, 4:42pm:
    I'm not sure what's more efficient, but I would definitely install 64-bit Windows and not bother with 32-bit ever again.
