We all have software that we love, and we all have software that we hate. Sometimes, there's even a few times in there that there's software that we love to hate. Jim Plush has this kind of love-hate relationship with Zend Studio as expressed in this letter.
Dear Zend Studio, thank you for giving me a remarkable debugger to use which saves me countless hours during the day. Unfortunately, I hate that you make me wait 2 seconds before rending text to the screen. I hate your unusable slowness.
I hate that I bought a beautiful mac with the amazing OSX GUI but you make me disable "OS LOOK AND FEEL" just so I can type in your lovely editor. It turns my lovely GUI into a 1980's screen shot of the first linux GUI ever made. Ohhh but your debugger, you minx. It's got me hooked and I can't give it up. I've tried the others and I keep returning to your sleek lines in the first 5 minutes when you actually work properly.
We've all been there and know this pain. It's good to see he's taking it in stride and is expressing it with such fine sarcasm too...
