You are wrong. The advantage of LIDE is that you do not have to create
those TIDE components (like the one for git what you used for the
example). You know writing all those integrated components takes a lot
of time and requires GUI designer skills so usually no Open Source
Software makes this last step (as the git people did not do it). So your
mutual back patting fails because of the following (but it is not that
interesting, just here for completeness):
1. Usually IDEs are modularized so there is no 'One True Way' just
2. Even if you has to replace something (for example drop CVS for GIT)
then you can just continue to use your IDE and only use the command line
just for GIT.
3. The simple fact that you have to develop from the command line just
shows how *pathetic* *the* *tooling* is in the OSS world, not that how
powerful your LIDE is.
Now, as I said the above was not that interesting. What is interesting
to me is this:
1. I have started the subthread by proposing that *maybe* it would be a
good thing to use an operating system which has good tooling.
2. Somehow you managed to turn this thread into a quest against IDEs in
3. You use the fact that the tooling is just pathetic in the OSS world
to show that it would be a bad thing to use an operating system which
has good tooling.
Can it be that I missed something about this 3. item? Or this IDE thing
is maybe the biggest Red Herring in this thread?
