Actually I believe that currently it is easier to port C code simply
because of projects like Wine. I remember that only C code is much
easier to make cross platform using Wine or some offshoot of it, but at
the same time, if you program it correctly, it should be perfectly fine.
I mean, if I had my program deal directly with the bits, there might be
an issue, but I made a higher level struct/class, then so long as the
implementation was ported, then the higher level code was portable.
So I have to agree in the end, it is programmer preference to a degree,
but also in the current state of things, the Wine project has made C
code more easily portable.
Feel free to disagree. I am only going on what I remember reading
somewhere, so I could be wrong. Arguments are meant to gain knowledge.
