While it is indeed a trivial and easy fix, do you think it is trivial and easy to find the cause of a bug as a result of that? ;)
As long as I've been using it, I've never had to find a bug in my own code that was due to that. In other people's code, it has been trivial to find. The only time it wasn't obvious just from looking at the code that I can remember was when someone used style 3 and put more than one statement on the same line after an if.
Hence why I prefer the first one. I do find it quite interesting that people who have auto-indenting IDEs prefer the version that would require less typing in notepad. Is it actually a typing preference for when you don't use your normal IDE, or is it for aesthetic reasons?
i dont know for other people, but it was the style i was taught. like when im solving a rubiks cube, i start white side and idk why but it looks weird if i start red side. same for other bracket styles. it just looks weird to me cause i have that one style ingrained in me
