'Beautiful' has been diluted in the same way 'disrupt' has. It's becoming a real joke, and I can no longer take posts seriously that claim to be 'beautiful' on here.
It has always been something of a joke. No one is printing out screenshots of their favorite web apps to hang on the wall.

Is there any particular reason for Yeoman to be a '.io' site?
Also a lot of names sound cool as .io, e.g. cloud.io can be read as "Cloudio". And due to the relatively high cost, a lot of .io names are still available. Just 18 months ago, a ton of 2-letter domains were still going (http://www.russellbeattie.com/blog/two-letter-io-domains-ava...).
And now you can't help pronouncing it "yo" !
I get that IDEs like Netbeans have a bigger memory print, but what I mean is that using a tool container that gathers` all your other tools together is really nothing new.
Am I missing something here? What do you guys think? oh and I don't want to start a vi vs IDEs war here. I'm talking about the concept.
EDIT: Just saw the package manager :) That's something!
That "!." surely hurts. Even more being a Google project… And the use of 'beautiful'. Seems that I'm not the only one. You could argue that it helps you use Bootstrap and other 'visual frameworks', but still.
It's basically the HTML5Boilerplate Build Script , with some nice extra's - Bootstrap (and compilation), package & dependency management, unit testing, preview server, etc.
