I've always had a slight mistrust of the "use the best tool for the job" metaphor, but for reasons I can never quite figure out.

In a programming context my unease usually revolves about one of these:

  • often uttered when serious comment was desired
  • best is often a grail, several tools may be nearly equivalent
  • personal bias or hidden agendas may be involved
  • the implied dismissal of the importance of the tool user's experience
  • perhaps the job is not defined well enough for such decisions
