Thank you for asking.You're joking right?
What does this even have to do with the OP?
Yes it's written by other coders but since most cs majors don't write lines of code anymore they learn less. This tells me that the code was written by coders in the past so this still keeps my point and yes I have been to college and we haven't written a line of code since freshman year... Not that we don't know but in college we don't write code. When was the last you stepped in a college cs class?If we assume that your assertion "all code is on the Internet" is true (which is ridiculous), who do you think writes that code?
Have you even been to college?
And I still fail to see what this has to do with Darwin/Win7...
'twas the point of my post.I graduated in '09. I did at least 6 or 7 semesters worth of programming, and CS was my minor.
Yes, a lot of code has been written in the past... but there are tons and tons of new systems being designed all the time. You say, "technology always evolves, but the code is always there"... are you implying that the same code used 10 years ago is still running our technology today?
And if you don't program in your Computer Science classes, what the heck do you do?
Um... Ok. I guess there's no point in a discussion if you don't believe what I tell you.Wait... There's no way you did 6 or 7 semesters of programming if it was your minor.
I don't even know what that's supposed to mean.Besides, even if it was your major whatever you did was the worth.
I might agree with your first sentence if you hadn't followed it by your second. Professors mean next to nothing. It all depends on YOU. If you've only been exposed to programming for three hours a week in an 8-month period (standard freshmen year), there's no way you're prepared enough to do it in the real world.There's no numerical value for how much you program in a semester. It all depends on the professor...
False. I had two hours of programming in php and I created a huge system. It depends a lot.Um... Ok. I guess there's no point in a discussion if you don't believe what I tell you.

let me just clarify something. when i said that they don't write code, i didn't mean in general. i just meant in school. believe me, ALL programmars i know, code for themselves most of the time and would rather work on their code rather than the school code. so yes, they do code, but whatever code is taught in college is only elementary. the code that is used today is learned either by hands on, reading a book, or by a friend who knows the code.I don't really know much about this and I don't want to make things up, but Abel, most, if not all, my friends are CS majors and I can tell you that they almost always are required to write code and program. I've never even seen one of them fetch a code from the internet, if any were actually available. I can see how a person can minor in one thing for 6 semesters, because I'm actually doing the same thing and will probably graduate by reaching that amount of semesters, so I don't really understand why you were questioning a point so irrelevant from your initial discussion.
Believe me, buddy, I'm not against you and as I said, I'm a Political Science student who has nothing at all do do with CS, but I have friends who are graduating this year and I know for a fact that writing code is actually one of their hobbies, and "fetching code from the internet" just doesn't do it for a lot of people, nor is it a means that is ALWAYS there and non-changing.
