Carlos, you're right that different styles are involved, and this
could be considered yet another "religious" matter, but don't make
the mistake of assuming those of us who prefer no IDE "come from
another background" or "don't get the fuss".  I suspect many or
most of us have used very fancy GUI IDE tools *extensively*, but
have after long years and for various reasons rejected them in
favour of simpler or lighter weight approaches.
