Survey: Tabs or Spaces

This is my second survey for the month of December.

Last week I asked about join predicate order. This week, it’s a simple question:

Do you prefer tabs or spaces to indent your T-SQL, and why?

I prefer to use tabs, because that’s how I learnt it in software development. Not that you asked, but my default tab size is 4 spaces.

Being able to adjust the tab size makes using spaces redundant, for me anyway.

Hit me up on Twitter (either @bornsql ) to have your say.
