The desire to create a new programming language

I find it curious that my desire to create my own programming language isn't what it was a few years ago. Don't get me wrong, I still very much want to do this, but I'm not chafing at the bit like I had been.

Why is that? Actually, I think it was as simple as going from using C/C++/Bash/Perl to using C#. Using a much more modern, full featured language quelled a lot of my frustrations.

What I find especially interesting about this is that this comes full circle to the observation that necessity is the mother of invention.

On a related note, I think it is critical for developers/creators to use their own work. It's easy to be ignorant about the shortcomings of something if you're not forced to use it on a daily basis. But if you're stuck living in an environment, you'll be quickly motivated to fix things if they're broken.
