If I had captured a snapshot of my application usage habits during each year of the last few years I think I would have discovered something like this:
- 2005:(Windows): Photoshop, Fireworks, Dreamweaver, Firefox
- 2006: (Windows/Linux): Fireworks, Komodo, Linux Terminal, Notepad, PHPMySQL, WAMP, Firefox (+Firebug)
- 2007:(Windows/OS X): Fireworks, Notepad, IntelliJ IDEA, Visual Studio, Firefox (+Firebug)
- 2008:(OS X): Fireworks, Textmate, OSX Terminal, Firefox (+Firebug)
I’ve got nothing really insightful about these pseudo-stats, it just kind of struck me as I was working that I really don’t use much of an IDE at all now.
