in reply to (OT) Where is programming headed?

Claiming that "C is obsolete" and that the future belongs to OO languages strikes me as more than a little absurd.
And yet, there are still people that code in FORTRAN or COBOL...

That reminds me that, in the age of word processing, Internet, etc, paper is obsolete, that you don't need telephone since there is email, that motor cars have made bicycles redundant and useless, that the steam engine has announced the doom of horse-driven carriages and sail boats, (and of course, as you can see in any vacation resorts, horses and sails are clearly a thing of the distant past).

[ambrus]: Today I accidentally cut my hand while carrying a computer. On the display part of the motherboard that sticks out at the back of the chasis and has ports, there's this thin metal sheet with holes cut for the ports, to guide plugs into the sockets.
[ambrus]: This sheet has sharp needle-like parts, 0.004 long and less than 0.001 wide, that can get bent to point outwards, and one of these cut into my palm when I lifted the box.
