It’s OK to not use Yarn

True you don’t NEED yarn, but it was faster, and smarter. Now that npm5is out, it has caught up with yarn, except it’s terribly buggy. See https://github.com/npm/npm/issues/16839 — a closed issue, but the bug still remains. I have several apps which I’ve had to switch over to yarn. So until npm fixes this dependency issue, I do need yarn(and I caution everyone against using npm5 in production for the time being).
