Jon Tiersen links to Tabelizers OOP myths. Of course it helps to define what you mean by OOP. To me, OOP is a programming technique for managing dependencies in software. Personally I don't go in for using OO to model the world. I'd rather in order of preference:
Not have to model the world, if I can help it.
Let someone else good at modelling the world do it.
Use the Relational Databases to model the world
Use Conceptual Graphs to model the world
Use RDF to model the world
None of the above approaches are as good as OOP is at helping me manage code - though they certainly reduce the amount of it I have to produce.
