Even I have some agreement that the choice of a language it's more a
business-driven issue I REALLY don't like that the techie weenie
shouldn't be heard. Talks a guy that programmed a GUI on Motif using C
(plain old C) in 2003 and takes almost forever (one year and a half),
instead of using any other graphical toolkit because "we can't afford
to expend time on learning new languages"...
I think time to development (usually related to "mystical" bugs well
hidden in layers and layers of code) it's an important thing to take
into account.
