How old is Turbo C/C++ ?

A brief comparison of Turbo C and 2014

1987 POTUS
Most users of Turbo C/C++ are younger than the Turbo C/C++ compiler they use at colleges. I checked our college's Turbo C++ and it was made in 1993. First released in 1987, back when Ronald Reagon was the President of USA and the Windows looked like this
Windows 1.0

Lyndsy Fonseca

Remember Ted's daughter from HIMYM, she was born in 1987 and she looks like this now. Even Penny Mosby will facepalm herself if you still double click on that Turbo C icon. 

Usain Bolt

Usain Blot was barely walking when Turbo C was released and now he hold World Record for 100m.

Emilia Clark in Game of Thrones

Who doesn't know Daenerys Targaryen from the Game of Thrones. Yes I'm talking about the Fire of Ice and Fire, Emilia Clark. She was born before Turbo C was released. Try to forget that now !


For all the football fans Messi was born the same year Turbo C was released. 

Ellen Page from Inception, Hilary Duff from Gossip Girls are both as old as Turbo C.

So think before you use Turbo C next time. If don't know any alternatives, let me help you. Try searching for an IDE with MinGW (Minimalist GNU for Windows). A most popular choice for Windows users is CodeBlocks with MinGW. But then again if you're really serious about programming forget Windows, come use GNU/Linux.
