Subject RE: [OT] Text editor usage (was RE: [OT]: What is vim?)
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2003 22:00:01 GMT
I have no intention of arguing this one. I've seen shell scripters that could run rings around
some java programmers. The language is rarely the issue. The skill of the programmer is the
issue. Text editor usage is only an observable trait in skilled programmers.
