I've been coding for 20 years too and I'm also open to new things. But no one can be proficient in everything anymore so there is a cost to learning something new: we have to forget something we previously spent time to become familiar with.

Don't be sad, it's clearly a natural reaction that has some utility. I agree that there's a better way to phrase it, usually something like "is it really that much better than what we have now?"




"we have to forget something we previously spent time to become familiar with."
