stallman's hottest computer take is

"The most powerful programming language is Lisp. If you don't know Lisp (or its variant, Scheme), you don't know what it means for a programming language to be powerful and elegant. Once you learn Lisp, you will see what is lacking in most other languages."

@anna Pretty ironic, considering his own emacs lisp. :blobfacepalm:

@vy i dont really know lisp very well but i am led to believe that his coding isnt that great

@anna I can't speak to his coding specifically, but the design of elisp is, ehh,,,,,,, well,,,,,

for such a "powerful and elegant" language, you can't even use regular variables to refer to functions. :blobconfused:
