Thats just stupid

Other software doesn't have this problem, they don't reuse the same file extension for a radically different version of the software

      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.


      With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'

      In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
