@marsch You should try living with the opposite problem. We got married to a very primitive set of in-house tools that worked really well for us, across a lot of product lines and allowed us to support a common OS for several different products build on several different hardware platforms. The problem was, we needed to evolve and our in-house tools weren't all that well developed for evolution themselves. We ended up re-writing the OS for a new set of platforms using off-the-shelf tools...development environment and build chain. The problem is...we still have to maintain our legacy systems because the products themselves are still in use and warranted. Nobody wants to work with the old legacy tools because they are more primitive.
