Yes, I tend to agree, but finding API details when you don't have a MSDN subscription can be a b****.
The one thing I like about Java over EVERY other language I have tried to work with is the self-describing documentation that can be viewed with any HTML browser. Moreover, it is instantly available online or off (because it just reads the details from the jar file as part of your SDK). It's format is also VERY easy to understand.
If Microsoft's API documentation was that easy to access and understand, I probably never would have started with Java. Since it isn't....-steeladept (June 26, 2011, 12:44 PM)
I'm not sure I follow you there. You can get all the documentation from the MS site. You don't need an MSDN subscription.
I actually have found the MSDN documentation to be much better and easier than other languages/SDKs/APIs.
Want a nightmare? Go try something with the Facebook API. Good f**king luck. In addition to being total s**t documentation, the API is broken. So, you are fumbling around in the dark, and running into land mines.
I'm not sure what problems you've been trying to solve. Most often I can solve problems by searching and finding community articles. Community is really important, and that's a strength in .NET. You don't get that with some things.
But for docs, MS is damn good. And one of the reasons I tend to side with MS technologies. I just don't like farting around with zero docs. I have better things to do, like solve my own problems.-Renegade (June 26, 2011, 01:03 PM)
this tool claims to "extract files from any type of archive, whether it's a simple zip file, an installation program, or even a Windows Installer (.msi) package." i think, it will come in handy if anyone wants to just extract files from the installers
btw, happens to be written in AutoIt and acts a front-end for a lot of other cmd-line programs. more info at the website and its forum:

I saw this on a Wikipedia page, but haven't seen it since:

Has anyone seen that?
I think it's a fantastic addition as I've seen some Wikipedia articles that have been flat out dominated by massively slanted views.-Renegade (June 19, 2011, 11:52 AM)
