That's ill-informed.

1. Atom is an open-source developer tool. 'Business decisions' (whatever they are) should take a back seat to 'developer decisions'.

2. The technology stack is not a long-term constraint on performance. It's perfectly feasible that performance will increase substantially over time.

3. Sublime text is not '10-100' times faster.

I'm a massive Sublime fan, and won't be using Atom. But you're spreading FUD.

User experience should definitely be more important than the technology stack. Also, the technology stack is a constraint on performance now, and now is what is important.
