Well the singlemindedness of your various responses to everything -
don't you realize that you basically look stupid. i.e. dumb, on the left
side of the IQ scale, moronic. Try a different tack the next time. One
good sign of intelligence - which I have yet to see you demonstrate - is
the ability to see things from other people's perspectives. Or any other
perspective at all.
Interpreted languages are the way to go for the simple reason that
programmer time - more now than ever - is a scarce resource. .NET is all
about customer lock-in - and customers are staying away in droves.
And here is another suggestion - Indians are not only cheaper, but
probably better. Certainly better than prima donnas like yourself.
