i had to laugh while reading your article. i went in the exact opposite direction. started with a bloated ide, passed gedit and now i am working with vim, having all the benefits you have listed, too (for free - hehe). i wish you to have much fun with you editor of choice!

Thanks! I'm glad it provided at least some amusement for you. I too wish to avoid bloated IDE though, which is why I'm happy with my current editor. :) (Which has a "Vim" mode too :) )

Hi Jared, thank you for being brave enough to come and thank you for your contribution.
