I thought we had a hard time getting concensus...
boy I've been on the python list for a day and got 150 mails.. many of them are down
python may have more users, but its also a wild jungle.
its also found it fun to follow a thread called:
Re: Too much builtins (was Re: Python's simplicity philosophy)
when I know that it takes 50 modules to do what rebol does with the amount of code in
the equivalent of 3 of them (without needing to actually load them ... ;-)
This while running 5-10 times faster... and having a much more reusable code base in
They still have nice souls on the list, I got an answer within the day like here.
But when reading about the more "philosophical" debates, like we sometimes have, there
seems to less intent on cooperation and solutions than on proving someone's point.
no need to follow up, it was just a short message to illustrate how this list fares towards
its "competition" :-)
You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution, but in the end, being
part of the problem is much more fun.
