Trash-talking CUDA

Found lurking on HPCWire.com, in an interview with Steve Wallach of Convey Computer:

…I call programs that don’t take into consideration legacy systems and that are obscenely difficult to integrate, “pornographic” programs — you can’t always describe them exactly, but you know them when you see them. In 1984, I converted a FORTRAN program from CDC to ANSI FORTRAN to see what they were doing and it was awful. In the contemporary world, CUDA is the new pornographic programming language.
