comment What should I know about C++?
None yet. I was looking for good books too, but I've found too many of them and now I don't know where to start (stackoverflow.com/questions/388242/…)

comment Being IDE dependent. How can it harm me?
Quamis: Isn't it the reverse? Having to type makes you choose short names that don't describe the class/method as well as a long name would.

comment Programming skills, problem solving genius or language guru?
"But programming is not an individual activity it requires a team of developers.": exactly, and that is why I'd add "social skills" to your list.

comment UI design and confirmation paradigm
@MPelletier: clicking on a button is much faster than looking for it, even if you have to click it ten times a day for a month. If the superfluous step was longer or more complicated, I'd remove it, though.

comment UI design and confirmation paradigm
@Thomas: the question specifically stated we weren't talking about a widely used app ("Granted that if Microsoft brought it out with say Windows-8 (fat chance, I know), people would get used to it eventually"). You can change users' habits when you build the software they will use everyday, otherwise it will annoy them.
