  1. Hi this is Kawaii from OSnews.com – just a follow up to the post you made (I can’t reply to the forum because there is a 5 day limit to the article). I already addressed the issue relating to backwards compatibility in the following post: http://www.osnews.com/permalink?507368

    The point of what I wrote in the post (to which you replied) had nothing to do with backwards compatibility being there but Microsoft failing to move their operating system to WinRT (provide XAML features for both Desktop and Metro applications) and leaving Win32 for backwards compatibility only (in other words, no part of the operating system relies on it thus making it a ‘removable’ subsystem in much the same way that win32 support can be removed in Windows 2008 R2 so there is only win64 installed).

  2. Hi! Great blog! Thanks! I added it to other resourses of learning C++!

    Wanted to ask about learning C++.
    What can you recommend to novices – how to learn this language?
