For Basic Programmers!

Well i have been saying it for a while and i dint know that The Great and The Humble Programmer, Edsger Dijkstra has said it before. I just read it on Scott's blog and couldn't help my self placing it on my blog.

"It is practically impossible to teach good programming to students that have had a prior exposure to BASIC: as potential programmers they are mentally mutilated beyond hope of regeneration."
– Edsger Dijkstra
