I'm curious what planet you live on, is the sky blue like ours? Poke tongue | ;-P

Back in '78, it was one of the West Coast Computer Faires held in San Jose, CA where I attended a session that a panel of self professed "experts" declared that the COBOL program was soon to be extinct since going forward, all school children would be learning how to program.

This old gentleman, (well, old to me, as was a wee sprout) stood up and said they were wrong. He said look around, everyone in this room knows how to read and write. How many are going to write novels?

I wish I had a video of that moment. I thought he had nailed it, while the panel avoided looking at him and no doubt hoped security would remove the old fool.

To paraphrase a line from Dr. Strangelove, "Programming is too important to be left to users. They have neither the time, the training, nor the inclination for strategic thought."

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
