my introduction to programming was BASIC on my father’s TRS-80 Model 3 back in the early 1980s. Shortly after that the IBM PC was introduced and I started writing C code using edlin. But was not long after that when Borland International introduced me to Turbo Pascal, Turbo C, Turbo Assembler, and Turbo Prolog. They might have had a Turbo Basic too, however, but then I was on to other things.
So when a company or team introduces a product, application or library with Turbo in the name it’s hard to resist the temptation to be an instant fanboy. I do not know anything about TurboLinks but I’m going to read the article anyway. Just for old times sake.
