Lingua Salvator Est

"Heavy emphasis on these types of lifecycle models represent the latest manifestation of what FredBrooks described as software engineering's "silver bullet" quest. A number of years ago, during the deflation of the 4GL bubble, which, ironically, overlapped the early days of object-oriented languages, BorisBeizer wrote mockingly in Latin about the "lingua salvator est" tendency, a desire to see the adoption of the right language as the magic solution, the savior, the discovery that would make all our problems go away. And, while we're on that note, CMM and TQM, anyone?" - via http://catless.ncl.ac.uk/Risks/24.51.html#subj5.4 -- TobyThain
