I try to avoid religious wars of all kinds, especially those that revolve around programming languages. But I can't resist agreeing with Sam Ruby's vote of confidence in favor of the modern scripting languages:
While Java and C# battle over who is the rightful successor to C++, it is quite possible that a language like Python (or, dare I say it, Ruby ) will ultimately be the one that wins out. [ Sam Ruby ]
Congrats to the AXIS team, BTW.
