Bit of background to explain the reasoning: I've been programming for a good while, but took a break between 2012 and 2014 for other stuff. Before that break, I would hardly ever hear about "++i", let alone hear decent explanations about it ("...isn't it... just better?" was common to hear). Now, however, I see it everywhere, and even some text editors seem to use this by default (Sublime Text comes to mind).
So I've been wondering; did "++i" become suddenly very popular as of late, or is my new work environment pro-prefix increment operators?
(another possible solution is that my old environment wasn't big on "++i" for some reason)
Note that I am definitely not asking whether this is a good thing or not; I'm well aware of how pre-increment operators work, and honestly there are enough debates about this on SO. I'm just asking if this is a local trend, or a more global one. Also this is strictly for C, not C# or Java.
