I won't vote. I've always used bluefish, but it's pretty annoying recently. The default-browser button won't open the browser. There is a cancel, ok, and apply button in the settings, and "ok" does the same as "cancel", and it can't spell-check special letters like ö and ä.
I might switch to Screem, but I'm not sold on it either.
there would always be somebody saying that they do all their hammering needs with a screwdriver. No doubt you can do that, but it is still NOT a hammer...
Popular assertions aren't necessarily correct assertions as well. If you count on tabs, command completion, text completion, "multi-window", spell correction, integrable and integrated FTP client, and integrated aliases/command line for launching a browser (or just refreshing a browser with the current page opened, using a light HTTP server, etc.) in a very stable and light editor is what I call a working IDE.
Confusing the WIMP model with an IDE is an entire ontological problem for my understanding.
If I do use VIM for anything is because of the easy, coding speed, mental clarity and pleasure I obtain from an excel editor. Now, If you chose anything for your own pleasure, you are on your right but it's your problem breaking your fingers with a mouse and menus, learning to use a peculiar IDE which is hiding the important parts from you or limiting your machine resources to few tasks.
