It should not. However, I do see there are languages and environments, where setting up a debugger may be hard.
But most people are application developers and don't do embedded etc. Those folks should really only use a debugger if possible (yeah, parallel programming indeed is a prob here) because usually it's even faster than printing, gives a lot more info, you can usually change stuff in the process and you don't forget print statements which may find their way into a public release.

I am working mostly with .NET Core and starting to debug is a matter of pressing one single keyboard key. Writing a debug print statement is actually more effort to me.
