Gnome "I followed the debate about a successor for the C/C++ combination as the primary language for developing the GNOME core desktop platform very closely last month. There has been discussion about a number of options. What I would like to do on this page is give an overview how a probably less well-known language might be a viable compromise as a C/C++ successor. This language is called Eiffel and exists for over a decade. Eiffel takes the principle of Object-Oriented programming to its extremes and, as a consequence, is a very easy to learn language."

Programmers aren't stupid. If you take away their personal methods you'll take away their interest; and the quality of your end product.
When we are assimilated in the borg collective then we can all be perfectly efficient and work the same, collectively.

At best by doing things their way they learn a new way which is radically better.
Please, stay out of my career path, don't be a programmer or a manager; we don't like your type.

When programming work looks like data-entry work computer science in the workplace will be dead. And so will innovation in the software world.
