Hey, I resemble that remark!

HP calculators are the only ones I use (I must have a few 10's of them
now) _becasue_ they're the only ones that do things in a logical order
(namely a function is executed when you press the key, there are no hidden
pending operations).

Infix notation is like M$. It only survives because people are used to
it. Once you've learnt something better (prefix or postfix notation), you
never go back.
