Scripting is hard

I would like to quote for you now the opening lines of Microsoft’s Scripting Concepts and Technologies for System Administration.

This is a book about scripting for system administrators. If you are
like many system administrators, you might be wondering why this book
is targeted towards you. After all, scripting is not the sort of thing
system administrators do. Everyone knows about scripting: scripting is
hard; scripting is time-consuming; scripting requires you to learn all
sorts of technical jargon and master a whole host of acronyms – WSH,
WMI, ADSI, CDO, ADO, COM. System administrators have neither the time
nor the requisite background to become script writers.

Ye flippin’ gods. Do Microsoft Administrators really think like that?
