  What I Hate About Your Programming Language

Response to: I agree....

I'd largely agree with your central point (not about Ada - about people choosing languages based on their suitability to solve the task at hand, or the kinds of tasks they face in their line of work). One ceveat: popular languages generally mean more time and effort goes into the compiler (interpreter) and any support software (IDEs, libraries, etc.).

If this weren't true, I'd be off exploring Oberon and other things all the time...
