comment IDEs for dynamic languages - how far can you get?
@ACNB: Plenty of "static" languages also allow automatic casting and type inferrence. Eg, C++, C#, and the like.

comment Should every member of a team use the same IDE?
It's just a tool. Any competent programmer should be able to utilise their tools appropriately, and if they feel that a different IDE is more suitable for how they do development, then they should do so.

The IDE really is just an editor, with a bunch of other tools, the vast majority of which can be called on the command line anyway.

An IDE is really an editor. In no way does an editor constitute a project dependency. (I'm aware that this answer may have been sarcastic, however, this is not the place for sarcasm)

comment Is it a good habit to use C expressions in C++ code?
The incompatibility between C and C++ is more than just keywords. The typing system changes, and there are features that exist in C (especially C99), that do not exist in C++. (Eg, variable-length arrays).

You'd use rhetorical questions. :) Equal? (What?), "1 and 2! (Erm... No...)

comment I'm a Subversion geek, why should I consider or not consider Mercurial or Git or any other DVCS?
You are working in a private branch if you ever check out a copy of the code to work on. Infact, this is the only way to use most version control systems. Subversion and other centralised VCS systems place a very significant restriction on this private branch - namely, you can have only one revision. (Some, like perforce, don't even let you safely merge without committing the current changes first in case the merge fails!)

Also, as a deaf developer, I'm shocked at the apparent inability to change or add the smallest detail.

comment Perks for new programmers
Not being able to justify an expensive coffee machine is a case of flawed priorities.
