    This guy is your typical Tunnel Vision Idiot (TVI). Just like a lot of the mac and linux TVI's, he fails to realize that just because what you use for your needs works really good, it doesn't mean that it's the best thing for someone else to use for their needs.

    "What is best for you is what works best for you." is what I always say.

    I've written many commercial programs, and for my needs OOP is best. No, I don't OOP everything, sometimes code is just inline, but for the most part, OOP not only simplifies writing things, but makes for expanding the program easier and less buggy.

    Didn't we have this argument, like, 15 years ago? Where this guy been for that long? There are even better techniques that build on OOP, AOP, for example. But then again, I'm "retired" out of the field, so what do I know. My 25 years of experience is down the crapper with my job now sitting in India.
