Went to a Java developer talk once, guy had many years in it. Said he found he could not do pair programming. Said when it's experienced with less experienced it was just a teaching-learning pairing, and he told his clients that's a waste of time.Heh, my new hire did that to my code. I quit. That wasn't the reason though, or so I told them.
Two experienced guys pairing, though, he has found doesn't help much if at all. Some experienced programmers have their styles and that's that. In one rarity, thank God, I heard of one who was on a team and kept changing another programmer's code to his own style..
