Today I write to get your opinion.
I believe defaults are important as few developers take the time to change them and in a distributed team it is often the easiest to stay with the default settings.
As we all know Eclipse defaults to 80 chars per line. After that the “Format Source” command will break the line.
A quick poll on Twitter indicated that people would like to see that limit increased.
What do you think about this setting? Wouldn’t it make sense to increase this? Is this even possible or would this change create too much noice in the version control systems of the existing code base?
