A few months ago he removed C++ from his home computer to make room for Windows 98. "It hadn't occurred to me at the time, but this was my last compiler," he told me the other day, referring to C++. "I still can't quite get over the fact that I'm sitting here with a computer that has no programming capability whatsoever, unless you count things like Word macros, which I don't."
I can program in Basic, though. It's about as useful as knowing Esperanto to the non-specialist these days. Both are good if you study languages, but it's not going to help you in your day to day life.
