My Secret Life as a Spaghetti Coder
home | about | contact | privacy statement
Before I come across as knocking it, I want to say that people whose opinions I value tell me this is probably the best IDE for Java development. It certainly looks awesome, from the few times I've seen it in use. I haven't used it myself, since developing in Java is mostly but a (somewhat masochistic) hobby of mine, and it's a bit pricy for that purpose. But one thing about IntelliJ IDEA that I've come to loathe is this, I presume a default for files it creates:

/**
 * Created by IntelliJ IDEA.
 * User: Administrator
 * Date: Sep 25, 2005
 * Time: 11:35:06 AM
 * To change this template use File | Settings | File Templates.
 */

Why is this wonderful? Because, as a developer looking at someone else's code, I want to know exactly what IDE they used to create it, and more importantly I like the clutter it provides. Seriously, I know you can change the template, but isn't this a cheap marketing ploy? If I didn't hear so many other good things about it, seeing this would certainly turn me off.
