If we agree that knowing the tools is less important that understanding the
product + knowing how to write, then we should convince employers that
knowledge of a specific tool is not an important hiring criteria, but a
secondary one. I still see a lot of ads mentioning tools as MUST
requirements. I know sometimes there is not enough time to train people, but
that should be only SOMETIMES not ALWAYS.

If we want to make a good decision about which tool is the best for our
firm/department, we should work in teams to have as many pros and cons as
possible (beware of group think!).
