Poll #839737 Programming questions

Open source software is:

primarily a subsidization mechanism for low-quality code.
0(0.0%)
a system of distribution of goods that is viable only in a highly socialized economic system
0(0.0%)
an illustration of the concept that "you get what you pay for".
0(0.0%)
good for sharing do-it-yourself utilities and code that one would write anyway, but a shot in the dark for new large-scale projects
0(0.0%)
neither intrinsically good nor bad, merely an alternative licensing method.
0(0.0%)
useful for the sense of community that it builds.
0(0.0%)
a successful system and capable of generating profit when there is enough critical development effort, a large and loyal user base, and significant market penetration (cf. Linux, Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird, OpenOffice.org)
0(0.0%)
sustainable in tandem with a healthy commercial component
0(0.0%)
replacing commercial software in many, if not all, sectors of the field of software publishing.

Whitespace delimitation is:

not necessary.
1(5.0%)
contrary to right thinking about how form (syntax) should follow function (semantics).
1(5.0%)
an arcane and summarily imposed convention that is better relegated to a customizable automated pretty-printing feature.
4(20.0%)
a useful syntactic convention, reifying the block structure of a program by requiring its proper indentation.
11(55.0%)
much better than bracket delimitation because it enforces good programming discipline.
3(15.0%)

True or false: it should be possible for a good Python programmer to produce twice as quickly as a good programmer in some other structured, object-oriented imperative programming language such as Java or C++.

Heck no, whatever would give you that idea?
2(11.1%)
False, but Python IS faster for general-purpose prototyping
0(0.0%)
It depends entirely on your application.
8(44.4%)
Yes, but it's not a fair comparison because you aren't looking at sustained development, documentation, maintainability, or even efficiency.
5(27.8%)
Of course!
3(16.7%)
