So, some of us were discussing the merits of IDEs vs other editors today, and this quote came out:
“IDE or no IDE; there is no vi”

My name is Robert Watkins. I am a software developer and have been for over 20 years now. I currently work for people, but my opinions here are in no way endorsed by them (which is cool; their opinions aren’t endorsed by me either). My main professional interests are in Java development, using Agile methods, with a historical focus on building web based applications. I’m also a Mac-fan and love my iPhone, which I’m currently learning how to code for. I live and work in Brisbane, Australia, but I grew up in the Northern Territory, and still find Brisbane too cold (after 22 years here). I’m married, with two children and one cat. My politics are socialist in tendency, my religious affiliation is atheist (aka “none of the above”), my attitude is condescending and my moral standing is lying down.

Here we go.. the vi/emacs/vim guys are going to go spare…
seriously though, IDEs have really gotten good in the last 4 years…
The “do or do not, there is no try” quote – I always credit that to yoda.. was it him ?
Yoda it was. Just before Luke’s X-wing he raised, it was.
