in reply to Object Orientation is:

OO in the real world....
  • Wrench set
  • Socket Set
  • Screwdriver set
  • Pots and pans
  • Vehicles
  • Genetics...

My point:
OO exists in many place in many ways. It is great in situations where there are large unknowns in the future. You build code, test it and maintain it seperately. You assign rules (parameters) to its input and output. Others that use it follow these rules do not worry as much about the code in the object.

I have written programs that OO saved 100s to 1000s of man hours programming. I have seen programs written that added 100s of man hours by going OO. Like all great projects, map it out from a thousand feet, but land and see the ground around you before you decide on a coding method.

Nothing clever here, move along.
