i find http://aegis.sourceforge.net/auug97.pdf a good way of opening
peoples eyes to the fallacy of using (g)make.

as for the statement about 'if everybody continued using existing tools
we would still be using assembler' (sorry for not having a proper
quoute):
i strongly belive that  most programmers today do use a portable, somewhat
object oriented, assembler. it is called c++.
