Command Lines vs IDEs

    There's general agreement on the productivity benefits of the modern
    IDE: ...

    But lighter weight tools offer a more rapid edit/test cycle with less
    waiting time. The command line remains one of the most powerful and
    fastest ways to interact with your system.

    Command line workflows offer a more flexible, less integrated, less
    guided, approach to development. You learn how to use them one tool at a
    time.

    It's no surprise that Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, and other members of "big
    software" promote IDEs strongly.

    So, in a way, the command line helps as a check against too much
    corporate or political control over our computing infrastructure.
