in reply to Perlmonk Oedipus Complex?

Why do I prefer Perl to C? This is an easy question... it's chiefly because I was able to learn Perl much faster than C. It's because of its ability to run on many platforms. For the things I do, Perl is almost always the better tool for the job. I work mainly from Unix.

Meanwhile, there hasn't really been pressure for me to learn C, though it's at the back of my mind to get done someday.

As for Windows, I used to use it exclusively. It was the only tool for the computing jobs I did on a PC (I had a few choices on my other platform, the AppleII), until Linux came along. I then replaced Windows with Linux. I was able to build my Linux-specific knowledge to include most any flavour of Unix. Excellent replacement.

Windows still remains a tool that I use, but I only use it when it's best (and even then, there's the virtual way)
