Editorial In response to Jean-Louis Glassee's article "The OS Doesn't Matter..." I wrote quite simply: the future of the browser wars is he who integrates with the OS best. This phrase came from my article lambasting Microsoft's use of HTML for their IE9 jump lists, which caused quite a stir. In the wave of ever increasing web browser capability, the operating system is going to matter to web users more than it ever has before.

But ASP brought server-side to the mindless Microsofties of the dot-com boom, which was my point. It wasn’t about who did it first, it’s who made it easy enough for unskilled people to clobber together something that works. There’s no way you could say that Perl was as peachy easy as ASP.

Yeah, I guess unskilled and Perl don't mix that well. :-)

I see your point.

That didn't stop them from mixing ;) Cleaned up a few of those messes in my day.
