A few weeks ago Cognitect ran the annual State of Clojure Survey, and presented the results, shortly followed by the analysis. While they did a great job on presenting and analyzing the choice answers, text responses were largely dismissed. Each year text responses contain the most information about which features users lack, or what are their biggest gripes with the language; so to avoid the survey being just another reason to feel good about Clojure, these should be analyzed too. It is easy to overlook a problem people are having if it is stated in stone-cold percentage. The other thing is when you read the sincere words of real people.
I understand that manual digging through 2000 textual responses is a hard and thankless job, but a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. I've spend the whole day, I've read them all, and boy oh boy do I have some information for you.
NB: I processed only answers related to Clojure, as I'm not into ClojureScript yet. If you want to do the same for CLJS, be my guest. Especially since CLJS has fewer answers.
NB: Great thanks to Alex Miller and Justin Gehtland for running the survey and providing the results.
