Laura, I'm not sure if you've moved this discussion offline... maybe
"away from the newsgroup" is accurate. Anyways...

But your comparision regarding C++ usability is utterly unfair. You got
paid an exhorbitant amount of money to tackle really godawful C++
problems in a corporate dysfunctional environment. That is quite beyond
any language issue. To say that C++ RAD-IDE would "never" help anyone
based on your extreme case use is grossly misleading. A solo programmer
or a small team that knows how to "fly in formation" doesn't have your
corporate $400/hour idiocy problems to contend with.
