What you two are I think missing is that without purity of abstractions
(either OO or otherwise), complexity will leak trough your abstractions
and your abstractions are rendered inefective or often even
I'm a big fan of multi-paragigm like for example combining OO with generic
programming, but only as long as the abstractions remain sufficiently
'pure' to remain usefull as abstraction. To me the 'inf memory'
abstraction that comes with GC should have been an ínf resources'
abstraction instead to be a usefull non anti-effective abstraction.
