it definately is. but imho for web development (the example that you
choose!!!) perl is definately not better always!! (well for some tasks java
is an overkill i think!!) but i think that having too much choice is also
not so good. there shud be choice, but not so many that newcommers start
trying to beat the clock in learning new technologies or learning something
that never really picks up or just something that is in the end a very bad
choice! And here with this discussion i guess u guys did try to put out some
intresting points.

Haven't all of us learned something from this! This surely was not a
flamewar.. though i guess soon it wud hav been!!!
