Can confirm. I may not be a scientist, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn once.

I use a hammer and chizzle on a stone tablet. Everyone else is ridiculous.

I used emacs for years. Challenged by a co-worker, he switched from vim to emacs, and I switched from emacs to vim for several weeks.

At the end of the challenge, he immediately went back to vim, and I never went back to emacs.

Prime I would actually like to see a side-by-side performance analysis of people who use vim vs intellij or something. Like an actual experiment. take a control group of devs who just started using intellij vs vim, measure the learning curve, and 2 months in final measure to see which one is better.
