    Hi,

    I enjoy this magazine and found this comment interesting.

    <quote page="45" paragraph="3">
    Four years ago, a Gartner report suggested that is was roughly twice
    as cost-effective to hire a Java developer as it was to train a C++,
    VB or Cobol programmer in Java. Java professionals cost 20 percent
    more than *legacy* developers, but the cost of training existing staff
    is even greater, varying from $23,000 (C++ developer) to $57,000
    (Cobol developer) ...
    </quote>

    Paulo considers C++ *legacy*.
