Greetings fellow coders and nerds alike ;)

I am a good friend of Matt Wilson (of whom I'm sure you know) and have been
helping him in what humble ways I can toward introducing stlsoft
(http://stlsoft.org) to the broad range of developers around.

I am conventionalist in all areas dealing with compiler choices. I have
always used Borland compilers (since I was teeny-weenie size[8 or 9 yrs
old]). My general idea was that if it couldn't be done with Borland, it
can't be done at all. Well, Matt introduced me to Digital Mars and said
"Give it a try". I was highly impressed with the low-level and
developer-centric model that the compiler is built around. I'd said I will
never switch, but that seems to be fodder of an ignorant mind. I've tried
many other compilers(MSVC to name one), all seemingly too
you-don't-need-to-know-the-inner-workings ish. I began playing around with
the files and things here and there and noticed that the
compiler/linker/tools are meant for developers that are actually developers
[if you don't know what I mean, then you are lucky].

Anyway, the point is that he introduced me to a compiler I now love. And
such a mystic name too - Digital Mars. I shall be a participating developer
now with it and other areas of technology being researched and developed.
Thanks Walter for the excellent developer-level compiler. I can't wait to
find out what more treasures lie within ;)

You're quite right, though.
