What about Web++, Web#, Web.NET. Oh yeah Web# or Web.NET is what a
certain Seattle based company thinks it should be.
Yeah all those twos were ... interesting. Missed DOS 1.x used 2.x, saw
Windows 1.x & 2.x and avoided it until 3.x, Linux 0.99 was where I got
started ( found it ). Missed Perl 2.x didn't find it until 4.036 ( on
DOS 3 ). What's a Python? Some big snake ... right? Still avoiding
that. ( Wondering where PASCAL X.x -- the savior from bad programming
practices -- went. ) Can't wait for Parrot 2.0.
