And eventually, there's nothing you couldn't do in assembly. The only
question is: how hard is it? And if we put it that way, we can bounce the
question back: how hard is it for whom? I think this is the main issue
here. In some circumstances, mainly when many people try to work together
to code something and they have a strict deadline, or when the program
grows quite enormous, OOP can be a good help. But only if you use it
properly. It's not a magic wand, it's a simple tool, like a hammer or a
screwdriver. If you can handle it and use it for the right thing, it will
make your life easier.
That's all, nothing more.
