Maven has been a real joy for me. It could be the simple fact that I can move from colleague to colleague's project without wondering what ant tasks are available or where the files are. It could be the fact I don't have to configure IDE's anymore, not even for downloading sources. It could be some of my favorite plug-ins. Maybe it's the 250,739 artifacts that are available in three lines of copy paste declaration. There's a lot to love.
Thanks for the props!
