James i feel like we are talking past each other. I don't doubt that the
best development tool right now for complex jobs is c++ or the like. All
i'm saying is that there must be a better way, and when we find that we can
develop even stronger tools and so on.

All your arguments have been used before when the change went from
assembler to c and from c to c++. They only last until the better tool show
up up and is being used by the majority of developers.

I don't think the thread will lead to anything new so i will pull out of it
before it gets to be a religious debate.
I will try to think up a graphical interface for an object oriented
language. When i'm done doing that i will post a message with a link to it.
Then we have something concrete to discuss.
