"And you trust it to do that?" (another Eclipse anecdote)

An old friend stopped by the office today for an interview. During the Q&A I showed him Eclipse, and I explained some of the refactoring features. "This one," I said, "let's you move a method from one class to another, and all the dependencies are automatically updated." His response was, "And you trust it to do that!?" It just makes me wonder what sort of shoddy IDE's he's been using at his current job. Ha ha!

Older versions of Eclipse. Or WSAD. Ha ha.

I expected you to say "I saw the feature and carefully checked it the first few times I used it--and under tests it performed admirably. *NOW* I trust it."
