comment What are the most impressive tricks an IDE could pull off with the code?
Yes but I also want support for CSV data in my source code or when I have to setup 30 similar objects.

comment What are the most impressive tricks an IDE could pull off with the code?
@TRiG: IMHO, there is a big overlap between the two. I indent all my code; the braces are completely useless.

comment What are the most impressive tricks an IDE could pull off with the code?
@Hila: Yes but the code is visible. What I'd like is that the compiler just generates them when it compiles the Java source; I don't want them to clutter the source.

comment Why should developers have private offices?
@Xepoch: The topic of drinking is worth a blog post of it's own. I usually drink juices mixed with water (20-50% juice depending on my daily form).

comment Compiler optimization examples
@Winston Ewert: No, this was just a chain of small generic optimizations which lead to this result. It's another example how a set of simple rules can lead to surprising results.

comment Compiler optimization examples
@Bart: I think that's a special attribute in the header files. But if it has the source code, it should be able to figure that out by itself.

comment When deciding on whether or not to work for a new company, what are your dealbreakers?
@Jess: What I was saying: If I had to use Windows just because of some policy when I could use Mono, then I'm not interested in working for you. My life is already complicated enough without nitpickers telling me how to do my work :-)

@David Thornley: Because of my bad experience, I avoid work in places where rules are set into stone by people that don't suffer from them.

comment When deciding on whether or not to work for a new company, what are your dealbreakers?
@Jess: I don't agree. In one place, everyone used CVS/Subversion, I used Mercurial. The standard IDE was IDEA Intelli/J, I used Eclipse. And I migrated all projects from Ant to Maven. At my current work place, Windows is standard but my computer runs Kubuntu Linux. There is always leeway.

@orokusaki: I tend to be sensitive to it and stop it early. But I have met people who thought it "cool" or "their job" to rip off others. They are manipulative and quite good at pretending being amiable, so I'm wary of them.
