Has anyone yet mentioned intranet web apps using perl cgi?

thunders made an excellent point that the evolution of perl has not revolved around GUI, whereas MS development has had point-and-click as a priority for a long time.

MS fills the niche of providing OS and apps for those who really don't like computers, and really really don't want to look under the hood to see what's there. One of my own gripes about MS is that this development attitude seems to have spilled over to their developer tools: Visual This, Visual that, left-click a few times and Presto! you have an app. And little idea how it actually works.

However, the reality is that most of our users fall into that MS niche and we have to deal with it. We have to support MS platforms (we have a Windows 7 Migration Kickoff Meeting coming up, groan groan groan) and MS tools are the simplest way to approach that. MS's closed proprietary code enforces it.

I've been using AS 5.10 and their ppm for some time, never had a problem with it. Considering that AS is trying to mate apples with watermelons, I think they do a pretty good job.

I have this dream that all my users are running Linux, but then I also dream about winning the lottery. The reality is that I still have to go to work in the morning and deal with the point-and-click crowd ... I guess that's why they call it work.
