I started programming a little bit before Visual Studio, but not too far: it was in the Trash 80 command line. Forget punch cards, some of the older guys literally had to wire their own boards to make a program.

The refusal to un-break lines is minor compared to the forcing of a bad bracing style.

Not being a total dick, I define "bad" here to mean "one that I don't want to use", rather than one that is actually bad. Eclipse has a default, but allows you to customize that to whatever you want.

I developed my own personal style before I ever got on the Internet, and I was surprised to discover that it very closely aligned with the 1TBS.

Would it kill MS to give people more flexibility? Sheesh.

Don't let my name fool you. That's my job.
