It is undoubtably true that you can dig a hole using a tiny spoon made  
of paper but that doesn't mean that a mini digger wouldn't make life  
easier. When I'm fixing a bug in .net I can investigate every object  
and whereas trace code will undoubtably allow me to track errors  
having a good debugger makes problem solving a pleasant experience. I  
can't see why anyone wouldn't want it.
