"Eventually, I decided that thinking was not getting me very far and it was time to try building."
Pike quotes
"Not only is UNIX dead, it's starting to smell really bad."
"Those days are dead and gone and the eulogy was delivered by Perl."

Pike Rob quotes
"I started keeping a list of these annoyances but it got too long and depressing so I just learned to live with them again. We really are using a 1970s era operating system well past its sell-by date. We get a lot done, and we have fun, but let's face it, the fundamental design of Unix is older than many of the readers of Slashdot, while lots of different, great ideas about computing and networks have been developed in the last 30 years. Using Unix is the computing equivalent of listening only to music by David Cassidy'"
Pike Rob
"Object-oriented design is the roman numerals of computing."
