    “If this sounds to you a lot like Object-Oriented Programming (OOP), you are right.”

    This sounds like Alan Kay’s aspirational viewpoint of independent “computers” interacting through messages. Not the object-orientation invented by Nygaard and Dahl in Simula, that introduced objects, classes, subclassing and virtual functions. Kay’s vision is not reflected in modern object-oriented languages, while Nygard and Dahl’s remain paramount.

    The argument that the Actor Model is really a form of object-oriented programming is an unrequired appeal to credibility.
