    Well universities are finally realizing how important OOP is becoming. C++, Java, and Smalltalk are based on OOP, and Ive learned all of them, C++ and Smalltalk in an OO course.

    Although I dont think procedureal programs such as C, will just vanish into thin air, I think its hard for people like myslef to program in something like C, when I have been doing so much OO.

    I think they are taking the right steps.
