And there's your problem. As professional geeks, it's OUR job to look at a tool/language/framework and see how it should be used.

This is how it's supposed to happen:

Company X: "This is awesome and can do everything!"
Your Boss: "This is awesome and can do everything, and I'm not saying that because they gave me a bribe completely non-conditional gift! Let's use this for everything!"
You: "This is a horrible idea, and if we actually use this, we'll probably all end up getting fired/bankrupted"
Your Boss: "Oh, ok then. I gotta go. I have a meeting with Company Y."
Proud to have finally moved to the A-Ark. Which one are you in?
