Not everyone does, so do you really think it's a good idea to write production code that needs Clock() to be that accurate?

I don't know why you have to defend every single thing about Linux, especially when it's questionable whether they're criticisms or not.
The kernel and shell themselves will work properly by default with clock().  If it doesn't work in Ubuntu, it's Ubuntu.  I hate how people use Ubuntu for making complains about GNU/Linux in general.  It modifies everything.

Clock() isn't accurate enough on Linux.
Yes, it is.  If you have the right kernel settings.

I made an expression parser ("2   +    2" returns 4, etc.) in ~500 lines.  At first, I added a clock() to see how fast it was.  Even if I execute twenty very long expressions, I still can't get the milliseconds counter to go above zero with the limitations of a long double and clock().

Excuse me? One "line" per function?

(define xyz
(lambda (a, b, c)

(print a)
(print b)
(print c)

)
)

I just made a valid Scheme function with 3 statements.
That somehow didn't work for me, forcing me to:
(display
 (string-append (string-append (string-append
  "You ate "
  (number->string meat))
  " meats.\n")
  "I don't even know how that's possible.\n\n"
  )
 )

string-append string-append string-append number->string

My teacher hasn't taught us anything all year, and google was being mean to me.

Or is this sarcastic? Obviously I don't use sarcasm enough if nobody can tell.
You use it too seriously.
Scheme is horrible.  You can't execute more than one "line" per function, making them useless.

Scheme (and therefore Lisp) is one of the coolest languages ever.
With you, it's impossible to tell if anything is sarcasm.

So, THAT'S what that was. :o

And lol, you still haven't fixed the BBCode.

KiB is 1024.  KB is 1000.

Hard drives use the metric prefixes, while Windows does not.  They uses those so that you are actually buying a smaller drive

IT IS NOT 1/5 OF THE TOTAL. IT IS 1/5 OF THE WINNING VOTE. OUR BAR IS BIGGER THAN THE 'NO' BAR, HENCE WE HAVE ACHIEVED DEMOCRATIC CONSENSUS ON THE SHITESQUE QUALITIES OF THE GIMP'S INTERFACE.
THIS IS NOT A DEMOCRACY

At least Game Maker isn't totally stupid.

At school, the programming 1 class teaches Scheme (eww Lisp), and we use DrScheme as an interpreter.  When you hit run, it adds 2 MiB of data to the RAM and it does not go away.

PROBABLY DUE TO YEARS OF CONDITIONING FROM MORONS ON THE GMC CHANTING "C++ AND LINUX ARE THE ULTIMATE"
ASSUMING THAT RETROX IS BIASED BY PEOPLE WHO MAKE LINUX LOOK BAD
