Productivity is frequently an argument made by developers to get the latest and greatest computers.

This is what our developers tell me we are using now.

This is what they want (a supercomputer and monitors for every window they might want open). Everyone else is using this and it even supports pair programming.


I suspect we will have to compromise; and balance productivity gains with cost. Sorry guys.

Notes: See for the story on the supercomputer. If I had posted this morning I could have told them this is what they are getting.
