Comment on "Objective-C Garbage Collection: Take 2"
by Daniel Jalkut — May 10
I agree. It seems like in the big scheme of things, automatic (or at least optionally automatic) memory management is a convenience whose time has come.

People who worry about the performance degradation this will have on the naive programmer's application seem to overlook the fact that new technologies with these caveats will always give veterans with perspective on performance an opportunity to easily outpace the competition. It's not like the world is going to become void of thoughtful programmers just because a new resource becomes available.
