|laziness, impatience, and hubris|
Yes... and no.
For example, i'm a lazy person. Or i tried to be, anyway.
In the process of avoiding having to figure out how to get Apache, PHP and PostgreSQL working on Windows Server 2003 i ended up coding a full-up implementation of my own webserver and webframework. Plus my own mailserver. And a full websocket implementation. Oh, and did i mention my Radius server and minimal test implementation of a GTK3+WebKit based browser? Which is also one of the reasons why i get volunteered rather involuntarily to hold talks on a few local open source conferences each year.
So, yes, most Perl developers are lazy. In a rather busy and productive way...
Not complaining, just saying. It's been fun so far, after all.
"I know what i'm doing! Look, what could possibly go wrong? All i have to pull this lever like so, and then press this button here like ArghhhhhaaAaAAAaaagraaaAAaa!!!"
