On the Acceptability of Lisp


Steve Yegge has a post that I just stumbled across on why Lisp isn't an acceptable Lisp. He hits on some great points, many of which numberless concourses of Lisp programmers would argue with him endlessly on. Nevertheless, good reading. His points:

  • Which Lisp?
  • Worthless Spec
  • CLOS
  • Macros
  • Type System
