To Rev or not to Rev

I know there has been lots of discussion on this topic since I joined the
list and I know many Rev'ers on this list have converted to Rev as their dev
language of first choice.

I'm having a continuing conversation with my provider about using his sever
to serve my Rev app.  First was he highly recommended MSSQL, which the list
took exception to.  Then I suggested he take a look at RunRev as a
development tool himself (hoping to get some local expertise using Rev on a
server) and here was his reply...

"it is more of scripting language that a real programming language ­ which
is awesome for the non-technical developers like me and you, but is not a
true object oriented application language which is being taught in
universities."

I don't know what to say about that.

Are there are x-talk/OOP languages that are compiled,
or, a difference between an OOP and an x-talk language,
or, maybe he just assumed that Rev is not a true OOP on first glance? ...
