in reply to Usage of tools

Hi toadi,

I've got pretty the same situation here, we got all workspaces packaged that they look all the same, have the same apps etc. But I can't work with a Windows-Computer that doesn't have BB4WIN, gvim, wincommander, putty and some other tools on it. People here tend to use gwedit for coding which I think is a not_so_bad_editor but well I'm so used to vi that I just don't want to switch to anything else. I would quit my job here if they would tell me that I have to use gwedit or ultraedit or any other weird editor :)

I think it's good to have all your stuff available on any computer, and that's what I've done. I put all the tools I use on my LAN-mapped-drive so that anywhere here I login I can start gvim with my settings, BB4WIN with my settings and putty (I created a batch that gets the stuff from registry and loads it back there...), etc.
And well if anyone has to use my computer it's not a problem at all, because he will see the same as he would on his own box, so I don't see a reason to change this. Everyone got his own tools etc he/she prefers so he should use what he likes to use and what is most efficient for them.
