Every language I'm aware of allows you to write bad code. The differences between many of them simply boil down to how easy it is to screw up. Consistant languages with predictable behaviour will reduce development time, maintenance time, and the number of mistakes made. Obviously if you have expert Perl programmers writing the same code as novice Python programmers the Perl programmers will do a better job.

The real question is what would the results be having a wide range of programmers of all experience levels of each language going head-to-head in a variety of real-world programming tasks. Perhaps it would be an interesting competition?

    [Corion]: marto: Well, I think they go a tour every two years and I think it's hard to even get a connection with the crowd at a 20k people concert... But maybe after this time I'll stop too ;)
    [Corion]: I still have to see the Pet Shop Boys live before they stop touring at all
    [marto]: yeah, I think that as a group creatively they're done. I can understand how it'd be hard to stop the process, album/tour, album/tour, if that's pretty much all you've ever done :)
    [marto]: Corion yes I saw them Pandemonium_Tour
    [Corion]: marto: Yeah, and I doubt that they'll ever get back to something like Violator/Songs of Faith and Devotion - it would either alienate their "regular" crowd, or be "too much Violator" ;)
    LanX needs to see Freddy Mercury'
    [Corion]: marto: Yeah, I have that on DVD even, and I missed them last year because I was in London at the time ironically ;)
    [marto]: put me in the mood to listen to this now :)
    [Corion]: LanX: Well, grab a shovel :)
    [Corion]: Kraftwerk also are still touring (well, only Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider), but I'm too tight fisted to spend EUR 150+ for standing around two hours ;)
