If you use autocomplete, should you credit the IDE for writing most of the program?

The new AI suggestion engine for Microsoft Visual Studio 2022 has literally never gotten the suggestion right even one time I think. But another question is should you credit some thing or person who is a constant thorn in your side and works tirelessly to be unhelpful and get in the way?

It's also fairly unimpressive even when it's right. Like do you really need machine learning to auto-complete a for loop?

Should I credit Microsoft because I'm using their OS?
Should I credit Intel and NVidia/AMD because I'm using their hardware to develop?
Should I credit the miners who mined the necessary metals for the parts in my machine?

Where is the line...  Tongue

Btw I do mention in all my projects what language, what IDE and which frameworks have I used, I often mention other stuff too, like what's been used to build (maven/gradle)... I mention external libraries from other developers as well (like in an Adobe Flash game, I didn't feel like writing an ActionScript<>SQL library, so I've used and credited someone elses)
However I rarely mention what I've used to make "art" (eg. Blender for 3D models, Inkscape for vector pics...), although I guess I could...

In "the bread book," a guide to socialism, they claim since there are so many previously existing inventions that help with the creation of a new idea that its impossible to give credit to any one individual, so owning new innovations is a bad concept.

I disagree:

Its complicated to sus out who the major players in a leap forward are and how they should be compensated, but to say that because its difficult we shouldn't try is absurd. If someone is responsible for inventing something like a ball bearing that moves everything in a new direction, giving them a nice paycheck is in order under any system of economics.
