The same was true, in my personal experience, of understanding goto-less
programming, relational calculus, and object-oriented programming. The fact
that something is conceptually very different from the way you have

Some people have reported that non-programmers, who still think that x=x+1
looks like nonsense, find the concepts much easier.
