Scott Kuhl Warning: I may have no idea what I am talking about!

I think the guy that wrote this article just woke up one morning and thought, "Let's see how many people I can piss off today."  Here is what he has to say about his experience with open-source IDEs.

They were slow, flaky and frustrating.

I very soon abandoned the Java world – I couldn’t stand the tools, the debuggers were crap or non-existent and the documentation was sparse one-dimensional and uninspiring.

There is nothing out there in the open source world that can begin to compete with the fluidity of TFS.

He is a C# programmer now, but he definitely is not a Windows FanBoy.

I Love Unix and would love to go back to it. But I couldn’t bear to give up VS.NET 2005. Nothing comes close.

I have to agree that Visual Studio and SQL Server are still the biggest reasons I don't make the jump to Mac OS X.  (Followed by Media Center / Xbox 360, subscription music plans, right click and Steve Jobs is an ass.)

LOL.

You're just about right there! Though I was mostly trying to piss off a friend of mine who makes a living creating Linux Development Distros.

My policy has always been: I don't care who or what created the standard, so long as it's widely adopted. That's the basis on which I earn a living.
