    Ridiculos. That's how single-programming-mood people react when they
    find that you can program in procedural or functional way and get your
    work done. I always had a fun seeing these "all-java-kids" fighting
    CRTJVAPGM or RUNJVAPGM on OS/400. ;)

  4. Uh?-( Are you calling *Joel* an "all-java kid"?! He's an old clunker,
    just like me!, and HIS background is primarily in C and some kind of
    LISP -- he makes that quite clear in some of his books.

    I am sure he wouldn't have a hard time on OS/400. I think he shows a bit
    of exaggeration in this article, as he is too smart to believe that the
    world is all object-oriented, but this is writer's right to grab readers

    This "all-java-kids" was a remark to his statement from some earlier
    article (mentioned also in this one), where he writes on people being
    taught only java on programming courses.
