OP makes no sense at all.
I drive manual, always have, and hope I always will. Though I just drove a rental car in Europe (brand-new VW Golf) with the new DSG transmission and I really, really enjoyed it. I could see myself driving a car with a similar paddle-shifting transmission, particularly if they become more common (and I'm sure they will).
EDIT: Just saw cq's post, and obviously I totally agree.
