The IDE Divide (2004)

Does Visual Studio Rot the Mind? (2005)

So I don’t think IntelliSense is helping us become better programmers. The real objective is for us to become faster programmers, which also means that it’s cheapening our labor.

The other issue is that good technologies (OSS) can fail to achieve adoption simply because nobody crafted supporting IDE plugins (and why bother creating plugins for something that's not popular?).
