Java is a cargo ship. Itâ€™s very bulky. Itâ€™s very enterprise~y. Though it can also carry a lot of weight. Will carry a project, but not very fun to drive.
Perl is a tugboat. Powerful enough to tug Java around, in 80 characters or less.
Ruby is difficult to describe. Itâ€™s sleek, sexy, and very fun to drive. Hereâ€™s a picture. Very trendy.
PHP is a bamboo raft. A series of hacks held together by string. Still keeps afloat though.
C is a nuclear submarine. The instructions are probably in a foreign language, but all of the hardware itself is optimized for performance.
HTML isnâ€™t really a
programming language boat.
