Right, if you go back to that post, I say that Perl, Java, and C++ are all "hybrid-OO", to distinguish them from Smalltalk, Eiffel, Ruby, and (I think) Scheme which are all "pure-OO". But if asked of any of those are "OO", I'd say yes. I was only rallying against the (incorrect) meme of "Everything in Java is an Object! It's all OO!". Because that is wrong.
