Yes, I did quote PG essays and http://wiki.alu.org/Evaluate_Lisp .

The management responded by saying that this is self-serving argument

Additionally, all storage software companies write C/C++ programs.
So, if they were to get fresh talent with storage domain knowledge,
then even the current C++ training would be unnecessary.
