|My question is this: if you invest the time in getting very proficient in a Text Editor like Emacs or vi, what type of return do you get? Please include an estimated number in your answer(ie. I am 10%, 50%, 500% more productive developing Python/Java/Ruby/other using Emacs versus IDLE/Eclipse/Arachno/other).|
EDIT: Also if you've written your own editor/IDE, please mention that(it's one option I've been prototyping with).
