This is all good stuff!  "Good" development is people presenting their info
and being able to examine it, subjectively, and using what works. (This of
course, doesn't mean we won't be passionate!!!)

I have not taken any of this as a jab - in fact, a bit of the opposite:  It
takes time to share what you know, and some of that time is a bit wasted as
my background (30+ years of S/W development) has covered a lot of ground -
including Eclipse and Visual Studio.  ( used both, mostly Eclipse because
my employment is focused on Java, and muscle memory rules my brain these

So, thanks for sharing and please do not apologize for taking YOUR time!
That is one thing you can never give back - I appreciate it!
