I reckon I have been harrassed by the people you mentioned. But JSOP. JSOP is great. He is above suspicion. He is innocent of all what others have said. He is good to mankind.
Not to mention that he has a lot of weapons and is skilled enough to find out where I live.
Anything outside Microsoft has been a bitter pill for me. I'd blame it on the MS-centric career 'brought up' I've had. Right from VB/VC to .net / Azure. Most of them are like piece of cake. Visual Studio is the major spoiler. I'll be able to work on given requirement, IF the dev environment is set up with Visual studio & the Microsoft stack.
There were times, if I was asked to code without Visual studio, I'd rather chose to quit and find some other job.
Now I'm gradually getting to explore things outside MS, and I have to tell you, it's such a BIG pain. My brain is struggling to get over the habitual MS stuff.
These bitter pills, it's not just about "Swallowing"in a shot. These are pills that I've to CHEW everyday. Some of them are in Php/Linux without intellisense, Even a code review is painful.
I should've at least practised php stuff with it's bare bones dev environments, in my younger days to be well set for my later part of the career.

So I guess you never user an AngularJS, NodeJS or related packages then?
Working with Angular is writing in notepad and then running in the browser, getting an error, fixing the error, running in the browser again and so on....
Even though I used the term in my own post, don't you find it odd we use the term "spoiled" which has so many negative connotations? Productivity is the driving force of our industry yet we refer to advances in productivity as being "spoiled" implying that less productivity is superior
Are you from the Winzigweich propaganda department?
And how productive are you without all that stuff? If you can't get anything done without your tools and assistants, that would be a good definition of spoiled. Then, the productivity gain by using these tools is also questionable. It could be that there actually are not quite as helpless and feel they are being hindered and annoyed by these tools. That does not sound like breathtakingly high productivity.
I have ditched Visual Studio years ago and now use Sharp Develop, not despite it being simpler, but because of it. And I do get things done.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
Being able to do something and being able to do it easier are different things. I'm not saying other tools are inherently worse simply by being different. I just find it odd that productivity improvements are viewed negatively by so many. "Real programmers use notepad and a manual" and all that nerd bravado
