Quote #9

[visual basic] als suffers from having to run in the awful windows
environment, where the least provocation can cause one's machine to go
catatonic. Interprocess communication in the Unix sense is difficult in
Windows; mechanisms like DDE and OLE are complicated beyond description, and
a simple notion like the pipe is nonexistent. [..] Compilers, though blessed
with elaborate user interfaces, are bug-ridden and shaky.
