There is a distinction to be made, however.

A carpenter will go to the builder and tell him that the air-nailer is a "must have", and will make the case that it "pays for itself." The average IBM i developer, however, does not do this with RDi. (Some do, but they are the minority.)

Another distinction... the carpenter is able to continue to use both tools, the regular hammer and the air-nailer, and use whichever is easier for the task at hand. Nobody is trying to 'deprecate' the hammer.

As to the cost, that argument doesn't hold water for me. It's like a
builder who refuses to purchase an air-nailer for his carpenter because
it's expensive and the hammer he already owns still works.
