You have a learning curve for the language, and a learning curve for the
What I meant was that the learning curve for the system is much bigger
than the langugage. So learning the system becomes a much bigger task
than using any specific language.
In that case, tool support could be more important than language, as the
right tool could help you understand the system better.
I am not saying it is like that. Just that I could imagine a tool that
could make you understand big systems better, and that less dynamic
languages would be easier to write those kind of tools for.
I often find that debugging is pretty trivial. But what I really hate is
when I trace the bug into a subsystem that I have not written. Then I
can spend several days solving it, as I have to learn and understand
that subsystem. In that case the system is larger than the language.
