Coders At Work: does it cover tools?

Does the Coders at Work cover the tools used by the coders? Are there common trends such as a tendency to use basic tooling that works rather that more sophisticated IDE tools? Do they express opinions on the importance of tooling and automation?

Regards

Based on the user reviews at Amazon, I think the book Coders at Work also cover tools.

I did ask most folks about that. Mostly the answer was "Emacs". ;-) The main difference seemed to be between the folks who used Emacs and felt like they really should learn a modern IDE and those who used Emacs and thought modern IDEs were a waste of time.

Do you recommend to use Emacs instead of Eclipse and NetBeans?

For serious Java development? No way.
