Ok, I hope I got that right with my entry here. I'm a quite long time programmer of Linux, C, Eiffel, Ruby, Scheme, Common Lisp and so called "non-mainstream" languages, for good reasons.

I've a faible for "software" that lasts or has stand the proof of time. Therefor I admire at most programming languages which are considered beeing old, and "correct" software.

One example of the latter is TeX, it is in use world-wide the user base if probably in the millions but the last error I can remember was posted around 2003 during development of NewTeX (or a similiar name).

Examples for the former are C, Common Lisp, Scheme, Smalltalk.

We do offer a C-IDE on Windows, Linux, Freebsd and Solaris (the Linux software is now getting 6 years old and it still works on either 32-bit or 64-bit platforms..., the windows software has "survived" 10 years, from Windows 3.1 and still is working on Windows Server 2003. It has gained a lot of speed over the years, it's not bloatware. Now the whole IDE with all the command line tools like compiler, linker, development environment and few hundred libraries is just around 5 MB to download. You'll hardly find a smaller fully fledged development environment.

Have written quite a few articles in diverse German magazines see:

At least one other user here knows me ;-), I'm unsure about the categeories of expertise. What makes on an expert?

I've contributed quite a few programs here:
