Maybe this is the begining of the end... but it's getting old listening to
people still cranking out green screen apps like its 1999 who can't
understand why new customers aren't flocking to the platform.
No flame, but two days ago I went into an auto parts store. When the clerk
logged into his dumb (!) monitor, the log in reminded me of a DEC PDP-11;
most definitely not graphical. The system painted (literally; probably
running a 9600 baud modem back to some office) the screen. Didn't even have
a scanner; he had to key in the number. This store was built within the
last year by a national chain.
But it got the price right, and I was on my way in < 1 minute.
