I disagree. Despite having used both prefix and postfix languages and
having become thoroughly acquainted with both paradigms, I still often
enough use infix notation by choice, such as when doing mathematics on
paper, and still use (and even write) calculator programs that use
infix notation - despite the additional code hair parsing it entails.

I'm not sure why; it's an interesting subject for thought. But I
certainly don't "never go back".
