Not strange for me.

To be honest, the more experience I have, the less I can understand what 
a debugger is for. Can't even remember when used one last time. This is 
valid also for programming in C/C++ or Java, so in my eyes the 
"Debugger? No, Thanks!" is not limited only to Python or other script 
programming languages.

Any professional programmer here who were really missing something very 
important when forced to program without a sofisticated debugger?
If yes, could it be, that they program hardware driver or operating 
system kernels?
