VisualStudio *is* the world's greatest IDE. I love it. I use NetBeans  
for Java (anyone tell me how to get the darn thing to show whitespace  
chars!?!?!) and Komodo for Perl. IDEs aside, it is very nice to be  
able to glance at a function and know what is local, a parameter, and  
module level. Hungarian is useful in the same way, but perhaps less  
so. I find that coders that started out in typeless languages (Perl)  
never saw the use of Hungarian. However, I usually just change my  
style for the language I am working in.

FYI - I'm only 28 : )
