    What do you think about the argument that Perl is a good language for small/medium sized websites and Java/J2EE is what should be used for large enterprise websites??

    When is the whole "enterprise" thing going to go away? I'm so sick of that marketing e-crap terminology. Let's face it...the number of "enterprise" sites that rely on perl far outnumbers that of java. Put those enterprise java beans in your B2B pipe and smoke it, marketroll.
