Programming Languages as Cars

Just as the famous statement said: "If the 800 series is a human panzer tank, then 1000 series has to be a Porsche."

Well, that case applies to programming languages as cars. My manager actually sent me an URL link of site showing the comparison of Programming Languages as Cars. Here are a few examples:

Basic is a simple car useful for short drives to the local shops. Once popular with learner drivers, it has recently been stripped down to a shell and rebuilt by a major manufacturer, The new version has been refurbished for longer journeys, leaving only cosmetic similarities to the original model.

C is a racing car that goes incredibly fast but breaks down every fifty miles..

C++ is a souped-up version of the C racing car with dozens of extra features that only breaks down every 250 miles, but when it does, nobody can figure out what went wrong.

Visual Basic is a car that drives you.

C# is a competing model of family station wagons. Once you use this, you're never allowed to use the competitors' products again.

Java is a family station wagon. It's easy to drive, it's not too fast, and you can't hurt yourself.

PHP is the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, it's bizarre and hard to handle but everybody still wants to drive it.

Fortran is a pretty primitive car; it'll go very quickly as long as you are only going along roads that are perfectly straight. It is believed that learning to drive a Fortran car makes it impossible to learn to drive any other model.
