I suppose that should read "off the roof" (as in suicide :).

I also do not see any evidence for the claimed portability of
Common Lisp. On the other hand I see applications written in "C"
on all platforms out numbering Lisp applications by many orders
of magnitude.

There of course even portability problems with Java - which was
intended specifically to solve portability problems.

What can we say?

"Life is complicated."

"Programming is a complex problem."
