Stop

CFOs and Tech Knowledge

Seriously - we wait on baited breath for the technically sage words of a Microsoft CFO ?

Are you for real ?

I'd suggest he/she gets back to worrying about why their share price is on the long-term dive.

Re:Ehrlang - please!!!!

I'm not throwing away all my investment in Java and C++ for yet another language.

Particularly when I can do all that Ehrlang offers already:-

JavaSpaces (transactional memory)

Jini (fault-tolerant networked PnP apps)

Rio (Service Level Agreements for Enterprise Scalability definition).

Codemesh (for native C++/C/.NET bind in)

Paris - 'cos even she won't jump the Ehrlang bandwagon

@Jason Hall

Jason - actually the problem is more related to the Symbian OS and small memory footprint applications - how they should handle "low memory or no memory available exceptions".

There's a good (if rather dry) podcast over at http://se-radio.net - look for the Small Memory Management podcast - if you *really* want to understand the problem.

A background in software engineering will help (as it would have helped Paris when she knocked up some of these apps).
