General Development Even though I'm not a programmer, I still know that while some programmers like the idea of graphical programming, whereas others shun the concept completely, opting for a more hands-on approach. While Microsoft is quite active in the field of graphical programming, the company's own high-level coders aren't very keen on the idea.

No Graphical Programming, Please

As someone who has seen and tried a little LabView (graphical programming language) code before, I hope that *never* becomes the way people program. The code looks like a messed-up circuit diagram, except the layout often has little to do with the actual meaning of the code. Also, using even simple data structures is awkward, not to mention trying to do any proper OOP.
