"I know English. I have nothing against other languages, but I was born American and that's what I know."

Cough. <Running and Ducking>That is debatable.</Running and Ducking>

Friendly cross atlantic ragging aside; all languages, operating systems, programming paradigms and editors are just tools. You use the right tool for the job. People discovered that thousands of years ago. I don't see where the confusion lies.

Also, diversity is the best and probably the only defence against a future where change is the only constant. I would hold this to be a fairly universal truth, not only applying to computing. For example, there is currently a dearth of genetic diversity. We are living in the period of time that has more species becoming extinct than at any other time in history.

    Oh, good. An Oirishman is making fun of the way we speak. I can't even bring myself to touch that one... it's just too easy. ;-)
