Glad to hear it! We're running yarn in some production build systems that are running hundreds of times a day, and some pipelines currently run yarn install ~100 times a build. In a day we probably go through thousands, if not more installations a day. I guess on larger scale, problems surface faster!

If it works for you, and you like it — go for it! I'm not bashing Yarn or it's capabilities, more highlighting some difficulties we face as an ecosystem! :)

Oh I know you're not bashing it! Yes I'm using it on a MUCH smaller scale.
