Hi All,

Let's start building the Tower of Babylon? :) (Just a rhetoric introductory
question of course...)

I personally *currently* prefer C# for VS-based DB-centered real-life
projects' application programming...

I'd not mind to develop MS Access 2003/2007/MS Office front-end if my
customer will demand that but I will very probably explain/prove to my
customer that using VBA/VB6 for anything more than "gluing" MS Access/Office
front-end would be waste of resources these days when we have VS2005 for
several years and when VS2008 (and .NET Framework 3.5 etc.etc. related) are
to be released real soon...

One year ago from now I was more VB.NET-ish than C#-ish :)

I'd not mind to become Ruby-in-Steel-ish
(http://www.sapphiresteel.com/Steel-Download-and-Change-Log ) one year from
now and to get really artistic and efficient with it as this Ruby-dance clip
http://www.metacafe.com/watch/292734/ruby_dancing/ :)

I could even get Iron-Python-ish
07_08_14_13_45_265/full_news ) real soon especially taking into account that
I currently programming mainly ASP.NET applications...

IOW I mean that right tool should be used for right job/task and that means
for me that limiting myself to one programming language is looking here like
a loosing strategy - that (limited oneself to use one programming
language/tool for every job/task) would look like that -
http://www.metacafe.com/watch/881053/penguin_goes_in_shop/ - yes, it's funny
and rather efficient but it's not:

as artistic and efficient as this
http://www.metacafe.com/watch/780405/the_best_goals_ever/ ...

and it's not as flexible and free to go in every direction (when
needed/forced by market/customers' demands) as this
http://www.metacafe.com/watch/788432/extreme_ballerina_stretching/ ...

and it (use of one language/tool) is not as hacky/tricky as this
http://www.metacafe.com/watch/828731/trigger_green_traffic_lights/ (very
efficient on demand "simple' trick :))...

and this
t_any_wound/ (I mean knowing "alchemy" - the best effective and flexible way
to use the mix of the modern programming languages/technologies within VS)
often helps to keep (new) customers coming etc.etc. :) )

IOW I'm voting/going for being proficient in several programming
languages/technologies to be able to speed-up/slow-down when needed
(http://www.metacafe.com/watch/880972/viewty/ ) but I'm also voting
for/going to use VS IDE as the base (limiting) framework to stay focused on
mainstream technologies/development tools, which VS IDE brings so plenty
these days...

But I'd mainly "limit" myself by VS IDE -enabled programming languages,
technologies and .NET Framework for developing core functionality of my
customers' applications because VS look like universal and efficient enough
for the tasks I'm going to work on: the rest of the tasks if they come I'd
subcontract to anybody else with pleasure...

And then I (hope) I will have enough spare time for the pleasure of playing
and watching tennis http://www.metacafe.com/watch/770613/maria_sharapova/
and traveling to watch the funny events like this one
http://www.metacafe.com/watch/786303/bathroom_break/ :)

Just wanted to make funny and joyful this becoming a little bit "religious"
and boring thread...

Sorry if my this posting may sound "religious and boring" for somebody

Thanks :)
