Programmers, does this make sense?

The general argument is that the mere size of a big program is a problem in itself, and considerable efforts, in particular choosing a low-bloat language, are definitely worth the trouble.

I'm not qualified to judge it--it sounds plausible, but I'm guessing at what a lot of the words mean.

Here's a cute quote:

Java is like a variant of the game of Tetris in which none of the pieces can fill gaps created by the other pieces, so all you can do is pile them up endlessly.
