I'm not going to speak for the OP's thoughts, but I myself have been a little surprised at times to see M$ "products" or M$-only environments (like where I work) and Perl together.

In my mind I often equate M$ with closed-ness, death-grip control, and TOWWTDI - There's Only One Way To Do It - the M$ way. I'll have to admit that I have these biases based on my experiences at work and the people here. They'll say, "Perl - we can't use that? It's not on the company's approved software list!" Or they might say, "Perl - who can read it?", when I might argue otherwise.

Furthermore, did you see the OP's sig?

Graciliano M. P.
"Creativity is the expression of the liberty".

Perhaps, like me, the OP thinks like this:

@msProducts = ("Visual InterDev", "ASP", "VB", ...); sub creativity { ... } sub security { ... } sub stability { ... } sub coolness { ... } @whatIWouldLikeToUse = grep creativity, grep security, grep stability, grep coolness, @msProducts; print scalar @whatIWouldLikeToUse; # 0!

, where sub (creativity|security|stability|coolness) are defined such that they always return false whenever they're fed the name of a M$ product or technology. When we run across things that challenge our assumptions, we are surprised. :-) I can understand the OP's surprise.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
