A couple of days ago I made a quick poll on how people preferred to install their SharePoint features.

The results are as follows:

Using STSADM is the favorite one, probably due to that fact the audience answering to the poll is mostly IT-Pros or developers. Using an MSI based installation is, surprisingly, the first runner up together with scripts. I totally understand why but there are many problems having an MSI based one but the problem is that installation and uninstall is tied to one specific server.

Unfortunately I did not get more than 18 answers.

So I would like to have your input on another matter, please do take 20 seconds of your time and answer the simple question:

What tool do you normally use to create SharePoint WSP files?
