in thread Nokia Drops Perl

But it's the functionality (and its quality) that matters, doesn't? Who cares if the functionality that you wish is driven by Perl or not? As long as your phone can make phonecalls, make coffee, and remove pimples, does it matter whether it's programmed in Perl or Python?

Let's phrase it this way. If you buy a table, do you care about the brand of hammer the carpenter used? Or is your care about what the carpenter produced with the hammer? If I buy a phone, I care whether the programmer did a good job. I don't care at all whether he used Perl, Python or Cobol for the job.

    I understand you point and agree with it.

    On the other hand, it seems to me that you don't expect more then just a phone call functionality from your phone. :) I have more requirements for the phone I use and these requirements are not all satisfied at this moment. If I could have a tool that I am good with I could take care of myself.
