in reply to My cow-orkers mostly...

My colleagues dislike Perl largely because it isn't C# or VB.NET. The lack of a "point-and-click" design tool -- even though our use for Perl has to do with text-mode automation tools -- leaves them disgusted. That, and they can't wrap their head around the idea that I don't need the full (pricey) ActiveState Komodo and PDK to develop and even compile Perl code.

To them, the $200 price tag of the ActiveState kit is seen as "Perl costs more than C# -- C# is only $100". One or two are finally understanding that I use the free version of Perl with SciTE to develop all of our automation tools -- and that the $200 license we've purchased from ActiveState was a waste, since I'm the only Perl devel and I don't use it.

Discipulus anyway xp is still the best lowend game machine
[Discipulus]: both: everyting must be identical in the new v-machine
[Lady_Aleena]: So putting a nice DE or WM up on a Linux machine is not an option?
[Discipulus]: i need some converter to have directly an OVF format directly: at the moment i'm trying with vmware converter standalone
[Lady_Aleena]: I don't know what to tell you. I can barely get my Linux machine to do things I want.
[Discipulus]: if DE or WM means desktop env and win manager.. no, not an option
[Lady_Aleena]: That's what they mean, at least to me. 8)
