I like tools. I'm old enough to remember what it was like to develop software with a simple text editor (VI, anyone? Emacs? How about See? I'll bet nobody remembers See.exe…) Then you'd compile it at the command line, manually run the linker, etc… and I appreciate how much our tools have improved over time. I love intellisense, source trees, version control, context highlighting, the wonderful way resharper allows you to fix problems en-situ, and all that.
But I also know that the more powerful your tools are, the more you can become dependent on them and, worse, the easier it is to misuse them.
