My perspective, from a somewhat different point of view:

When I create a new way I want things done I introduce it gently at first and then cut the cord and the old way is gone.   I already learned years ago, that where I work, users want to do it they way they were doing it = even if it's stupid, irrational, and/or mistake-prone. I'm not overstating this.

So, pretty much I, my fearless leader, and our upcoming (welcome) third wheel make the decisions ourselves and that's how things are.

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.
