  • that the programmers commenting were ones who use .NET?
    • Not terribly. My housemate is a .net programmer and he's one of the sharpest programmers I know :)

      • That was meant as a joke.

        And yes, I know that there are some very, very good .NET programmers. However there are a lot of very bad ones.
        • Well, (I'm sure you know) there are a lot of very bad Perl programmers also. I wish there was a (valid) study of not only how popular languages are, but also the percentage of good/bad programmers in each. The only thing I can say about .NET is that I (and I believe you) don't care to program in it.
          • I really think the results of that study would scare me.

          • How would you define "good programmers"? Ones that don't pee in their cubicle?
            • Heh. I didn't say that I would want to be the one to conduct or even define the parameters of the study. Or that such a study could even be done :-)

              But it would be interesting to correlate that factor with good vs. bad (after defining what good/bad is, of course).
