Task specific editors...

One has to remember that most of our colleagues still live in another world - which text editor is good? Is it as good as emacs?

Wow. Those seem like the dark ages. When text editors didn't support the tasks you were performing. They provided you with the basics, nothing more (Ooo look I can highlight a rectangle!). Really, Eclipse and IntelliJ have changed the way I work. It's just a matter of time before all editors do the same thing. How do you change your code if you don't have refactoring tools?

I might choose my next language based on the tools. Languages aren't that big a deal. (Well okay, Smalltalk might be a big deal).

Good thing everyone in the world works on the same tasks, isn't it? :-)
