The IT biz is full of micro-Nazis, mostly people in management who have no business managing anything. Developers (generally somewhat socio-pathic) end up getting promoted to managers and their ineptitude with people then becomes a major problem. Just do your job and let your managers think they're smarter than you.

Personally, I can type a lot faster than I can write, and my writing skills have deteriorated over the years -my writing is often illegible, even to me. Plus, I can't grep notepads, which also often get lost or tattered. I can keep my notes and papers organized on a USB stick. Still, I do keep a notepad handy in case there are diagrams I want to jot down or if there is an activity that requires paper.

We are Microsoft. Unix is irrelevant. Openness is futile. Prepare to be assimilated.
