Or decision makers, who decide development Platforms for a Project
(which most often are *not* the developers).
I am not free to choose my Platform. It's sad, but it's a fact. If I
could, I would do most of my development in lisp (I love it). But its
neigh impossible to get someone to support lisp. Especially when you
are forced to interface with the (non)standards of some unnamed
proprietary entity ;-/... So most of the Time, the choice of
languge/development Platform is by what is supported by the necessary
surrounding technologies. At least that's how it is here.
