    Just because you don't need it anymore doesn't mean someone else doesn't :). Bootstrap is used by millions of people, many of whom don't know front-end development as well as you or I. It's not a solution for everything, but it's a solution to a lot of problems out there.

    How do you work on this for 2 years and don't realize the need for namespacing?

    We've missed on a ton of things over the last couple years. It's tough to find time to do it all when we're also working full-time. I myself managed a 30 person team at GitHub :).

    What is up with the load of utility classes that do one thing?

    We have responsive utilities like Tachyons and more to help with commonly repeated property-value pairs. Makes for super fast development and ideally can help folks reduce their custom CSS.

      I would like to take a moment to acknowledge the work that been put into Bootstrap, especially from you. From a "default design" perspective it's one of the few frameworks that makes the best visual choices that will work in a wide variety of contexts.

      So don't take my comment the wrong way. Lots of <3 for Bootstrap, and when compared to the other frameworks, Bootstrap's the best.

      I guess I am "beyond Bootstrap" in the territory where I have more needs.
