Discussion on: Yes, ColdFusion is "Unpopular". No, I don't care.

I had to google what is ColdFusion to understand why someone would try to bring attention to it. So what I found is a proprietary system with an XML language.

I'm bringing attention to the fact that what 98% of devs know about CF is wrong. If you were told that CF is a proprietary "XML language", that only proves my point.

I mean, seriously who would ever choose that over dozens of free, well maintained open source frameworks in 2019?

Corporations pay big money for enterprise systems and premium support or have you never heard of Red Hat, Oracle, or even NPM? But you're missing the point - I do use a free, well maintained open source language.
