General Development I like this one: "By definition, a program is an entity that is run by the computer. It talks directly to the CPU and the OS. Code that does not talk directly to the CPU and the OS, but is instead run by some other program that does talk directly to the CPU and the OS, is not a program; it's a script." Here's the other eleven.

None of the things I mentioned do it by default (you have to make the decision to have spaghetti code.) try/catch/finally does it by default. That's the whole reason you people use it.

The definition of OO matters when we want to have serious discussions about it. It's sort of hard to judge the merits of something that lacks a solid definition.
