Luckily I don't want to do Web development but C++.
I compile my C++ into Javascript.

Also iunno, but a lot of you seem to take the node modules article seriously, while to me it reads like obvious satire (though the bloat itself is probably real issue).

I'd advise anyone who's interested to watch the second video first, then watch the first one if you want to see it in action. The first video is very noisy, while the second has all of the history of unix from v6 and up, and ends with a description of minix. The stuff about switching kernels on a live system is interesting, though I wonder if you can ever patch Tanenbaum's manager program, should you need to.
