Came from the deepest dungeons of 8086/80286. Been thru MASM 5 and Turbo Pascal 4, fought alongside Netscape Navigator. Dark were those days. Now PHP/JS/LESS is the name of the game, and when it's really time to make something useful I choose Lazarus. Hourglass cursors are not my friend; I still believe in milliseconds, benchmarks, instant responses and user experience.
I often take the shortest route through the jungle but I pave the road all along.
