@freakazoid so I don't think I ever went bankrupt; but startup time absolutely got long enough that I learned all about emacs daemon and emacsclient. after getting a couple new laptops in succession though (rather than sticking with a desktop), I definitely pared the .emacs file way down. (can't remember the last time I had to "blow away" a git directory, though 😜).

It's interesting to me that the Rust ecosystem has some similarities (smallish packages with a central repository; although the primary repository is not privately owned) but doesn't seem to have the same level of dysfunction.
My guess: partly a difference in average experience level, and partly exposure to lower level programming where "my dev console is constantly full of errors that I'll never understand anyway so yolo" isn't the normal state of existence.
