Do we need another language? Well, I think we certainly aren't there yet where there is a consistent language that makes us efficient. By that I mean being able to think about the problem at hand a lot more and not have to waster a lot of time on language/framework artifacts... and be confident that if we write it, it will work as expected...

Still, we don't need another "me too" variant that lists the trendy keywords...

But then I am living with someone who has been thinking about languages and slowly creating ones, so I have had this argument too many times, including as yelling matches :S

lol

I'm afraid my lot is a bit worse. He walks in circles in the house mumbling, and sometimes I get a lecture on completeness or aspects or some other terms...
