You liked your old boss right?
Honestly? Not particularly. The man was entirely prepared to make the two Perl programmers on his team port of the production Perl code (much of which has run without issues for years) to .NET because "Perl is unmaintainable."
We only talked him out of it by escalating to his boss and explaining that (a)neither of us knew .NET well enough, (b)the UNIX scripts were not likely to be successful as .NET applications, and (c)we don't like spending time and money to fix stuff that's not broken.
- 20070808 : added "all". Makes much more sense now.
