When people tell me that Java or ASP is better than Perl, I generally just give them the same funny look I would have given them if they had said something as profound as "Why do you wear a hat when an elephant is so much better?" or "Why do you use Perl when you could be swimming?" I don't feel like I need to justify my choice in languages, most people don't buy a car based on what tools were used to build it, if you are the programmer, the choice of tools should be up to you, other people only need to worry about the end result.
