It's not the language, stupid

Krzystof Kowalczyk notes that in the latest ICFP Programming Contest, second place went to a project written in C - demonstrating the the programmer is what matters, not the language.

Rock on, Krzystof!

We keep seeing new languages come on the scene, with promises of "better this" and "better that" but at the end of the day, you can do anything in any language, including writing downright poor code. I've seen some really good work done in the much-maligned Visual Basic, and really horrific things come from the "saviour" Java.
