Unit tests have their place. It's just that I mostly developed frameworks, which need to be exercised by non-trivial applications, which then become the primary tests. I've also been working on a C++ static analysis tool. It does many of the things that a compiler does, so my code base often serves as the test suite. But I also did some container templates, and they have unit tests.

If you want to read something heretical, these articles by Jim Coplien are worth the time:

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
