I am one of the people you are disparaging, as I turn 60 in less than two weeks. While I am currently the oldest member of my team, I am also the leading advocate for new technologies and new techniques. I will admit I don't do web programming. My fields of expertise include complex machine UI's, real-time distributed process control, and embedded applications.

By your standards and based upon these factors I'm an out-of-date oldster who should be euthanized because I'm in your way. I will be laughing my ass off from hell when you do, as you try to run a commercial ink-jet printing system(*) from a web server. You're trying to keep track of printing four colors on both sides of the paper, at 600x900 dpi, putting down over 1 billion drops of ink per second, on paper that's moving over 10 feet per second, and that's for one system.

(*) Using my current job as an example

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.
