“When we assess a programming language, or a machine, from a psychological point of view, we cannot grant ourselves the luxury of putting all the burden of poor programming on the poor programmer. If the same programmers get consistently better results using language A than using language B, what good are arguments that they would have done better in language B, if only they had been smart enough to master it.”
