comment What is the most orthogonal programming language?
@SeanMcSomething That's interesting, given the focus on side-effects (moving the turtle) rather than evaluation of expressions.

comment My boss decided to add a “person to blame” field to every bug report. How can I convince him that it's a bad idea?
+1 for redirecting the boss's idea into something more productive (always easier to win a battle that way)

comment In hindsight, is basing XAML on XML a mistake or a good approach?
My point is that you are judging it entirely against the criteria of writing it; your concerns have to be balanced against validating and interpreting it too. A DSL that was nicer to write would almost certainly be harder to parse. But an intermediate compilation step could give you the best of both worlds.
