Swift — all good names were already taken…

…so we stole this one.

When Google introduced theirs “Go” some (including me) were concerned about similarity with already existing language “Go!”. But try to sue Google over one character. Who can stop rich, right?

Same story with Apple now — they just introduced new programming language called “Swift”. The name, you have to admit, has the striking resemblance with already existing programming language called “Swift”. Hmm, maybe the typeface is changed at least.

So far I just peeked at the basic syntax, and it looks interesting. As always, there is a question if it is good enough to stop developing my own language…
