At work, I do a lot of python and shell scripting, and a bit of Fortran, usually involving file systems and numerical solvers. I used to use C# and Java for little projects, but I've forgotten most of it. Once upon a time, I did hardware programming in C.

I like working with python and C#, and I have more respect for Fortran than most people.

comment What plastic do Quatro blocks use?
Someone from Lego got back to me and confirmed that they do use ABS. I never would have thought! Thanks greatly for the additional info.

Actually the colors are not very good either! I've sent an email to Lego, maybe they will find someone who can say?

No worries! I don't think Quatro were very popular :)

The compatibility is actually not very good. Everything fits, but the softness of the Quatro makes it all a bit too loose to build anything useful. All very useful info though, thanks.

Also note that there is a dedicated Quatro page at brickset.com: brickset.com/sets/theme-Quatro

Just wondering, does this also exclude Duplo and other Lego brick-like products? Note that Quatro are a LEGO product (albeit discontinued), and they are compatible with Duplo (and indirectly to Lego bricks). It seems to meet the criteria outlined in this question.
