I learned C specifically to write Gnome apps. I've been writing in 4GL
languages singe my career began. I'm not stupid or uneducated, I'm young
and that's just what people were willing to pay for when my career
started. That being said, I would be able to contribute a whole hell of
alot more code if I could do so in C#, VB, or Java.
