Anonymous Confessions from Programmers.
I once rejected a very well-paying job just because they asked me to use Sublime Text (which they bought in bulks). I told them I'd rather die than not use vim for my job. Was it a bad idea? Probably. Do I regret it? Hell no.

Sublime does have a classic mode, but it's basically broken Vim, and the missing parts hurt me every single day.
As a die-hard sublime user I absolve you
Probably a nice indicator of the culture. (Command and Control! Do what we say!)
Did they ask you or FORCE YOU?... i don't get it
Vintage mode, dude... vintage mode.
Had the same experience, except they wanted RubyMine.
You did the right Thing. Even I would have done that.
Vintage mode is like being trapped in a hellish alternate universe where vim was purposefully broken.
I'd never accept a position that forces me to use a specific program for any dev related tasks. It doesn't matter how it's done, just get it done.
why do they care what editor one uses ? as long as the task is solved, i cannot see why any imployer would argue to use something else ?
I love my job, we get to use whatever we want (except we have to have windows 7 for encryption software reasons). One of my coworkers runs a fedora VM and codes in Vim, I use ST, another coworker uses Eclipse, and we try our best to keep our boss from writing code at all.
That doesn’t make any sense. The whole point of developing in text editors is to allow a project to be edited by anyone using anything. If they were pushing an IDE, I’d understand the conflict, but this just sounds like two children arguing over their favorite colors.
NP++ wuz ere:
NP++ is da best
^^ NP++ LOL. Good one.
I would use RubyMine if I could. Smexy.
Sublime is great, but forcing to use a specific editor is just stupid.
