Let's pitch them against each other and see which ends up the last IDE standing.

The report set my internal FUD alarms clanging. After reading the full report and speaking with its primary author, I have to say that the Info-Tech study not only fails my FUD sniff test, but also demonstrates classic FUD techniques.
