in thread Maintainable Code?

I think this is why I am suspicious of any programming
"platform" that comes from MS or has the word Visual
in its name. When I use these "tools" I get the funny feeling
that the people that created the tool think they know
more about what I want the tool to do for me more
than I do. Or they think I am stupid and they have to
make everything work so simply that a monkey could do it.

Of course they make it easy to point and click out Hello
World demo programs but these tools (I feel) have lost
the ability to easily represent abstractions needed to
write more than trivial programs. This is why I love vi and Perl.

[ambrus]: Now it has five people instead of three, some sort of call number ticket system where people wait a lot for their food to get ready (it's the same kinds of grilled meat and fish on the same equipment, it won't actually fry slower),
[ambrus]: it's slow as hell, and the food costs significantly more.
[ambrus]: We no longer eat there.
LanX Everybody quotes it, some people read it, and a few people go by it
[ambrus]: LanX: why would I read it? isn't it a book for managers? I don't want to be a manager.
[ambrus]: I don't quote it either.
[erix]: it's really a software book, albeit about experiences from the 60s-80s. People haven't changed all that much though.
[erix]: a software project book, is probably more exact
[ambrus]: Yes, but I'm not managing software teams either.
[ambrus]: I'm not only not a restaurant manager, but also not a software manager.
