    "Ancient tool"

    by Markdan on Jul 11, 2018 2:26 PM

    Summary:
    This ancient tool should be retired. Do they still make this any more?

    "Old clunker"

    by Markdan on Jul 11, 2018 2:17 PM

    Summary:
    Some of the code the program writes for you is bulky. The live view is not easy to make selections. and the program can freeze up from time to time and upload speeds could be quicker compared to other FTP clients. My biggest complaint is that you can't buy it alone but have to also buy other Adobe tools.

    Not sure Dreamweaver is still relevant.

    "Piece of ******"

    by Markdan on Jul 11, 2018 2:11 PM

    Summary:
    Android Studio is an embarrassment. Hey, it might be okay of it actually worked, but it doesn't! I have never actually succeeded at using its visual tools to lay out elements on a screen. I’m sure it’s theoretically possible; but every time I’ve tried, I’ve gotten so frustrated that I’ve just given up and written raw XML layout files instead. The same is true for the other tools. Strange that Google should have messed this up so badly, when they're leaders in other technologies.

    "Oldie but goodie"

    by Markdan on Jun 5, 2018 4:31 PM

    Summary:
    This is an old debugging tool that hasn't been updated in many years. IBM bought it when they bought Rational back in the day when they were interested in development tools. In the last few years, however, this and other old Rational tools have been relegated to the dustbin - sold to Unicom a few years ago and allowed to rot and rust.
