We need to retire the IDE/Text Editor distinction. It really serves no purpose now other than to cause pointless debates or make people feel a bit more elite.

The line is too blurred between the 2 and it doesn’t really matter anyway.

Nearly all text editors these days are just modular IDEs, people add on the bits they want and do their work in them. May as-well just use IDE to describe all of them.
