Aaaargh :(

Why, why syntax does have to matter? I thought it matters too, at first, but after sixth or so language I noticed the feeling of importance of syntax vanishing. Now I find good support in my editor much more important than syntax.

(Edit: and "you don't need editor support if you have good syntax" doesn't seem true to me either)

That's the point. A great many programmers learn one or two languages over the course of their lifetimes - look at all of the career Java and C# programmers.
