There can only be 21M bitcoins, and over 18.5M have already been mined. The transaction cost (updating its blockchain) is more of an issue, but not so much if it's used as a store of value instead of for regular trade, in the same way that you could compare gold (store of value) to paper (for regular trade).

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
