in reply to What is Enterprise Software?

Enterprise software is the sum of its qualities and parts, just as a good man is. Sure, a good man may have killed a person once in his lifetime, but is he still good in the long run? Is it enough to count against him, for all the right things he's done?

php and perl have a harder time since there's no one company (read authority w/ money, consultants and professionals) saying, "yes, it's good. we provide something and prove it." To some degree, they deliver, to some they don't. Sun does that for java, even if it spins the truth a little, like cross platform compatability. where's my jvm for my c64! ;)

Same w/ ES. Sure perl is enterprise level, but not for the same reason oracle is, different component types. Certainly for not the same reason java is, but they seem to converge a little, w/ the advent of ORMs, XML processing, fast web prototyping and what not. But they don't converge due to the tools involved and their qualities, that can be argued all day long. 'cause it's like pizza toppings. Do we ever agree on that? (Ham and Pinapple ftw!)

[1nickt]: The best sign I have sign in a protest march was carried by a kid of about 10 years "If you build a wall my generation will tear it down."
[1nickt]: ... sign I have seen ...
[1nickt]: Now that one made me hopeful! First time not angry in a long time when I saw that kid.
[Discipulus]: i propend for removing: why? because we are so few that we must find i minimal common divisor, this is certainly Perl not our (anyway private) thougths. And i say this still wondering because i love a lot freedom of expression. And i say this not for roho
[1nickt]: Discipulus that was the point of my story of taking the sticker off my truck. I know there are lots of people in the world who if I knw their private beliefs I might want to argue with them. And they with me. But life cannot all be arguments!
[1nickt]: This is less than perfect ... but demanding perfection (from people or from life) is a sure way to unhappiness.
[Discipulus]: and anyway we have CB where every (democratic) opinion can be expressed
erix eat the rich!
[1nickt]: I do think it is sad that roho has received 3 downvotes for his polite request, as did I when I objected to the profanity in stonecolddevin's sig. I upvoted both him and Karl for the discussion. Way too much downvoting for inappropriate reasons here!
Discipulus learn that 'argue' has a little negative sense, he thought was a neutral sense, 'vox media'
