Question: How can you make a language your "primary language" if there isn't even a usable debugger let alone a usable development environment for it ?

Answer from a GNOME developer:

Excuse me, but may i ask very politely: What exactly is a "de-bugga" ?

Although i have no idea what you're talking about i looked up this webpage and it says there's a program called "looking glass" that seems to be that de-beggar thing you're missing. From what i understood it basically does nothing and crashes most of the time, which brings me to my second point: What in the world should such a de-bigger thing be for ? Anyway, i didn't need a "dee-bagga" for my latest business app that shows the words "Hello World" in a reeeeeeeally awesome animation if you touch a 4-pixel wide area of the screen edge with the mouse and press a certain key-combo simultaneously. So i have to assume that a de-bogger is simply one of those remnants of the past, of days of programming "programs" gone by that we at GNOME simply did away with a long time ago. We don't do that. We develop apps. No dee-bagger here. Move on. Live with it. If that's not for you, well, get lost. Which makes me believe that your absurd question about this "dao-bugga" is just another attempt at trolling, at pouring the nasty liquid of the GNOME-haters on our beloved desktop environment that does very well without duh-biggers, thank you very much ! I therefore recommend you move on to some other, de-baggo-containing DE like KDE, CDE or whatever and de-bag as long as you may wish !

Get lost !

With a name like *that*, I think we can say this is obviously a trurl account.

(sorry sorry the devil made me say it, and if you don't get it google either Trurl or Klapaucius...)
