Whether or not it helps others, I'm using netbeans because its very
helpful (code completion, auto help dialogs- can be annoying but
manageable) in that it reminds me of what else is in a large system of
code, and it handles many different languages even when they're all in
different projects to keep things going so I need the flexibility.
I know I could probably use emacs and customise, but I can't quite see
all that without a lot of hassle. Plus I need to maintain X systems for
my users anyway- so why bother fussing? They need a nice, flashy system
to work with so the more I use it the better I can tune it to their
I deal a lot with users and X, hence my viewpoint on the subject. I also
contend with "stuck in a rut"s who refuse to move from a buggy, insecure
systems like M$ provides. The most ridiculous situations are when
supposedly staunch FOSS administrators are trapped into doing bulk
administrative tasks on windows only admin system because (1) the users
want something only M$ provides, (2) they can't figure a way to run a
suitable alternative on FOSS. Ergo, they're stuck doing a task hundreds
of times over because it can't be scripted due to lack of cli.
