If you read the comments on /., its clear that this
survey was really dumb. The set of tasks chosen was
a very small part of what a scripting language can be
used for and were heavily geared towards file management/
system administration, so the results shouldn't surprise
anyone. It is quite meaningless to proclaim one lanaguage
as the 'winner' because no language can be well-suited
for all applications.
Q: Do you ever think about quantum computing?
Linus: I think that's a load of bull.
(From a Linux Lunacy cruise interview. After the presumptuous disparagement
of QC, Linus goes on to confuse it with DNA computing.)
