Oh, Niels Bohr is outstanding - I thought you meant people of the IT and computing world.
And don't forget Hans Christian Ørsted who didn't invent, though discovered electromagnetism:

Hi Gustav --
Yes, you country nurtured and "donated" to this world so many talents!
I somehow thought that Bjarne Stroustrup has Swede origins.
But I was sure Niels Bohr was a Dane :)
Yes, I have seen the Turbo Prolog in action that time but I haven't used it by myself - I was a fellow research assistant so "logical programming" with predicates and all that great discrete math stuff wasn't that far from what I have used in some of my everyday activity...

>Turbo Pascal was the entry door for many into programming. Not for me though - I did other things at that time, and my first real language (after batch, QBasic, and a little assembler) was PDC Prolog which later became Turbo Prolog - a strange language where you have to "think backwards" but it was fun. Since Microsoft Access and Access Basic I haven't touched Prolog, but one day - who knows?

> HI Gustav --
>Thank you for your comments. I have many .NET Framework apps running for my customers, they use mainly MS Access and some MS SQL backends. .NET Framework/C# have proven to be a great development and deployment technologies, thanks to Anders Hejlsberg who is from your native country and city. How do you, Danes, manage to nurture such a great talents there? :)
>BTW, I have started my PC development business quite some time ago supporting a legacy code base of a payroll system written on Turbo Pascal - the whole app, source files, MS DOS system, quite a few other stuff ... everything fitting and running on a 10MB (!) HDD of IBM PC XT... :)
