comment Is there any benefit by switching from C# to Java?
By "out of the box" you obviously mean once R# or CodeRush has been installed and your machine upgraded to quad core, 32GB RAM. The range of refactorings and debugging aids in Eclipse such as Hot Code Replace simply have no equivalent in VS. BTW I've used VS for 15 years and have recently started with Eclipse again, got no agenda in favor of Java/Eclipse.

comment How do you handle your Project Manager
@Gabriel McAdams, the goal of negotiation is not to make both parties happy. Most often the goal is a compromise. An agreement is reached but neither party is really happy with it. Negotiation is also only useful where both parties are reasonably matched in terms of negotiating power. If a boss says "do this or find another job" this is no negotiation.

@Ugly American, is something missing from that Bill Gates quote? It doesn't make sense to me. ie Measuring aircraft what by weight?

Great answer! Have we worked for the same companies? It's all about over-promising and under-delivering isn't it?
