Sorry, I thought the discussion was "immutable" vs "static".

Why some programmers pay much attention to what the others say about programming, how they write their code, try to convince, change their mind?

Let's say, a program is written by someone. For various reasons, we may choose to use it or not. But isn't the key criteria: does it work for us?

I use so much software of which I have no slightest idea what the code looks like. Yet it works!

Why would I try to convince someone how to write their code? I can see this is a popular sport. Yet I must be missing something. What's the thrill?

Oh yeah, and why are there so many different programming languages? Can there be just one or two?
