OOP Criticism

I started off Professional Programming using the Procedural Paradigm (Algol) gradually moving to Component Oriented Paradigm using the highly efficient Unisys Linc - basically my path never crossing the much touted OOP paradigm before I gave up programming to become a manager. And boy, ain't I happy about that.

As to why happy, somebody else has put that beautifully on this site OOP Criticism

OOP, Object-Oriented Programming is indeed overused and overhyped. The best programming advice of all time is "Keep It Simple, Stupid" (KISS). Good procedural design with clearly documented and reusable modules is hands-down the winner over complex classes touted by the OOP masses. The clean, easy to maintain, well documented efficient program that doesn't take an army of programmers to create wins. Clearly, the procedural or procedural/relational approach is best.
