I wasn't implying that I am unwilling to learn a new language or use a new tool. Nor that any other programmer/developer be willing. It is our profession and we need to do what we have to, in order to get the job done.

I myself am learning / teaching myself C# as I am re-writing my software package that started life as a GW-BASIC, Flat file database (that I developed), in 1979. Over the years, the code went to Visual Basic from the first version to VB6, and the database to Microsoft ACCESS, and Microsoft SQL Server.

I am doing this so that my remaining clients all of whom have been with me more than 10 years will be able to find someone to support the code after I am gone. More C# programmers that VB programmers these days.

The point I was trying to make is that every engineer THINKS he can build a better mousetrap but only 1 in a million or so, actually can. I have no issues with creation of a new Language think Quantum Computing, where there is a demonstrated need for that language.

Most of the fools out there creating new languages are doing it for reasons of ego, when there is no real need for the language they created. Just because you "can" does not mean that you "Should". To put it another way, Different is not usually "better", it's just different.
Illegimati Non Carborundum!
