Garbage-collecting duck-typer. Test-infected. Hopefully he is not alone who would like UNIX rewritten with GC memory and closure support in system, kernel API in Javascript, (Python, Ruby, Smalltalk), and C layer deprecated and emulated on top of the former.

I use Windows on workstation and FreeBSD on server.

Recently dipped myself into the mobile app world.

comment How to say “Should we [do something]?”
You're right, via guidetojapanese.org/learn/grammar/polite: "The masu-form must always come at the end of a complete sentence and never inside a modifying relative clause. When we learn compound sentences, we will see that each sub-sentence of the compound sentence can end in masu-form as well.", so in compond sentences, as this one, it is ok for both verbs to be polite; it is only about intra-sentence verb clause.

comment How to say “Should we [do something]?”
Shouldn't it be "日本語で はなすか、それとも英語で はなしますか?" AFAIK, only the last verb should be in polite form in the sentence?

@virmaior I changed it to "many characters". Not every, of course.

comment に vs で with state of being (but no verb)
I am wondering what I got the downvote for in this answer - there isn't anything false there, is it?

comment に vs で with state of being (but no verb)
I can't, on a spot. You have began your question with "All the に vs で comparisons I can find ..." so I think they have more examples; as I said, it doesn't matter if you do state of being or a verb; treat is as a verb (BTW you effectively used a verb since です is historically contraction of であります ;-) ).
