I wonder if the annual Dataquest language survey, if it still exists, 
that showed that more "programmers" used Basic in it's various flavors 
then all other languages combined still shows that... hmm, is that a 
reason to use Basic? After all, supposedly 80% of all business apps are 
written in Basic - presumably Visual Basick since they've pretty 
effectively killed off that entire market segment. Personally, I think 
i'd rather take up a career as William Park ;)
