What is Enterprise Software?

Kragen Sitaker summed up "enterprise software" effectively in an email last year: Enterprise software is software that gets sold to a so-called enterprise. I'm finding the argument that some programming language or framework or whatever isn't "ready for the enterprise" dull. Aren't you?

Don't get me started on "scalable"....

enterprise = collaborative
I have been doing "enterprise" technology for a while and I agree that there is no such thing as an enterprise language or framework. I work on a system that supports hundreds of users and integrates with all kinds of other systems running different platforms. We get by just fine with Perl and XML and have no trouble with scalability.
