comment Is is possible to unit test a web forms site
@TomSquires: of course they are not, and if you read my answer carefully, you will notice that I never said they were. But the question seems to confuse the concepts of unit tests and automated testing in general, which is why I listed various meaningful automated tests you can throw at a web form.

comment What language and topics should be covered when teaching non-CS college students how to program?
-1 for Java / NetBeans. Throwing together a GUI with a forms designer is a wonderful tool, but it's not what programming is about at its core.

@Stargazer712: Basically what Lie Ryan said. In fact, this is the only decomposition that makes sense.

comment Do object-oriented programming languages exist that are not class-based?
Javascript is certainly one of the most widely-used programming languages in the world, but I'd expect most usages to be plain old imperative or procedural, with maybe a bit of aspect-oriented programming (callbacks? AJAX? event handlers?) here and there, so calling javascript the 'most popular OOP language' isn't quite justified.

comment Is Visual Studio Express suitable for commercial application development?
Previous versions disallowed commercial use, which is probably where the confusion stems from.

comment Which functional language is good for a beginner?
@FUZxxl: it certainly has, but it is a relatively small hurdle compared to the problem of getting into a FP mindset.

comment Which functional language is good for a beginner?
@FUZxxl: By "less important" (note that I didn't say "not important"), I mean in terms of a learning curve. Of course the differences do matter in the end, but they don't make one of these a better choice as a first functional language. Oh, and Lisps do have a strong type system, they just don't apply it statically.
