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.

20% of the world is real.
80% is gobbledygook we make up inside our own heads.
