Real software doesn't use file extensions at all.

    Real software doesn't use file extensions at all.

    Really?

    • So your editor that looks at the extension to determine what syntax profile to use isn't "Real software"?
    • Your C++ compiler that uses the file extension to determine whether to compile the file as C or C++ isn't "Real software"?
    • gunzip gunzip: _831513.exp: unknown suffix -- ignored isn't "Real software".
    • ...

    What a pointless, valueless, meaningless statement.
