Imagine if someone summoned a magical genie and wished for a perfect code editor. Since it is perfect, does that mean it provides you everything you ever need to code the optimal solution? Or since it is perfect, does it enable you to accomplish the coding aspect instantly?

Thus, the paradox:

Does the perfect code editor mean that you spend nearly 100% of your work time using the editor or does it mean you spend nearly 0% of your work time using the editor?

What metric can we even use to measure the perfect code editor? How will we know if and when we have it? Are we close to reaching that point?

Programming Tools

This is where all the vim VS emacs posts should go.
