I found here the smartest and the most objective analysis I was able to find on the net about this controversy. Bravo !

This must figure inside of any computer science class as “first paradigm” to understand as tool for programming tasks.

Personally I started to program in Basic, Fortran, Pascal, and after 10 years later in Gauss, Matlab, Maple, Mathematica, Python and now Cuda. For ending today (after a natural fixed point in Matlab because its readability and easy of coding mathematics) with Julia and Cuda Fortran as the most elegant ways foe expressing the scientific programming (i.e. 1-based indexing for CPU and GPU coding).
