There is no empirical evidence that OO leads to better software.
That does appear to be true. I don't know of any convincing argument to the contrary.

Maybe OOD leads to better software, because, it actually requires thinking about design :)

    That is just completely silly.

    Good software "works".
    The users like it.
    They understand how to use it in an intuitive sense.

    People think in terms of functions, what they do..actions..

    The OO idea is counter intuitive and takes some getting used to.

    I "get it", but it is an unnatural forced relationship.

Eily thinks vrk is a cookie monster
talexb thinks the term 'cookie monster' is unnecessarily drogatory ;) and takes a cookie as well. Mmmm. Delicious cookies.
