Our collective experience. That is what both my friend, who runs a small software house, and I have seen over the last 12 years.
Companies/gov.depts. that want their software developed using OOD/OOP, are looking for 'software engineering'. They want compiled code and type safety, and defined standards, and ISO9000 and buzzwords compliance and all that good stuff. They ain't Perl. Java or C++, or C#, maybe a few OCaml. The 'safe' choices.
Companies that (at least a few years ago) would accept Perl solutions want them to work -- usually yesterday -- and were much less fussed about the style of programming used provided it was simple, clear and maintainable. That's not OO.
With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
