Petty little princes
I am tired of the Java-Python-Ruby battles. I'm tired of hearing about the trivial differences between two Smalltalk children and one Modula 3 child. I'm tired of the "Java sux0rz! Ruby r0x0rz!" attitude that the Ruby fanboys are piling on with. I'm tired of Pythonistas falling for the trap and assuming they must build a Rails killer to "win". And Java fans take the bait, too, battling over accessors and iterators while sitting on a language with great IO and multilingual facilities. It's not like any of them are that great but they are all certainly servicable for now.
And as usual the guys with the biggest mouths seem the least qualified to speak.
