OOP sucks primarily because you've got all these astronauts who are obsessed with silly, bloated design patterns. One of the biggest issues is that our CS educational system is broken because it promotes this trash as good design. The other issue is all these books, blogs, etc. that promote over-architected solutions to relatively simple problems. Gang of Four design patterns are mostly passe, and all of the advanced developers I know barely give those the time of day any longer. But, alas, how will narcissistic developers prove how smart they are, if not by the silly application of arcane design patterns?

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
