... Which creates a recurring (the worst kind) burden of maintenance on the current or subsequent developers.

comment Is reinventing the wheel really all that bad?
In all decisions, it's good to ask what your primary objective is, and then cause the other sub-elements to support the primary objective. If your primary objective is to deliver a quality product in a timely manner, then duplicating already-existing code is likely a detriment to this goal. If your primary objective is to create a better-thought-through library, then maybe it contributes to this goal. If you work for someone else, then you need to ask the question from their perspective, not so much yours.

comment If I immerse myself in Dvorak, will I forget QWERTY?
I am one that decided several years ago to learn vim so that I would have an awesome editor no matter what platform (or terminal) I was running on. While the ideological reasons to adopt DVORAK are clear, the pragmatic reasons are not. Perhaps this vacation time would be better used, like learning a new language, platform, contributing to an OS project, or actually taking a vacation :) (this is just a comment)

comment What are your favorite version control systems?
This answer strikes me as a lot of complaining and moaning about something that the poster clearly did not take the time to understand. I've spent extensive time in both git and svn, on both linux and windows, and will testify that git is vastly superior to svn, in concept, data model, understandability, and usefulness.

comment Best IDE for HTML, CSS, and Javascript for mac
+1 for the vim plug. Not that I recommend it (due to learning curve) but personally, I use vim (mac, windows, linux) and textmate (mac) for most text editing.
