But, sticking with existing ways is not thinking of the big picture... you get stuck in the semantics of the code and are forced to abide by the rules they set forth, whereas if you invent a new way to do it rather than use a promise, you can write code more efficiently... so it is more, better tools

— I think the syntax should at least be optional

— Certainly

— spawn is too

— But, you lose all the benefits

— Aka disableable

— I don't like the syntax idea because it means instant lock-in

— There is already lock in lmao

— Thats the point of the new syntax

— Without the syntax?

— People have chosen to ignore that they are locked into the current ways of writing JS... look around to other langs and you will realize how limited JS devs have been all this time
