You just don't get it, Alain! A way to go from A to B would be a
notepad, but for passionate folks it would be the IDEA or let's say
Ferrari Enzo and the likes.

Not a Notepad, but IDEA 1.0. It used to run on my 300Mhz, 96M old
laptop. And I ditched JBuilder for that "Notepad".

Sorry to contradict you on such a serious matter Dmitry, but it all
depends on the requirements :

- req 1: provide a vehicle to move 2/4 people from A to B
in a reasonable amount of time, Should be reliable, cheap,
easy to fix and maintain, anywhere, by anybody.

Applying DTSTTCPW, you would produce a Ford T equivalent : cheap, few
parts, easy to fix, all colours, as long as it's black, ..


- req 2 : enhance vehicule for maximun speed and show-off factor.
Money, mileage, efficiency, noise, manoeverability, .. are no issue.

Here you would build a Ferrari.

Whether it's a Ferrari, or Jennifer Lopez, it's OK for a try-ride, but
not for everyday : looks good, but way too costly, and too high
maintenance.
