I was going to let this go

but it kept bothering me so here we are.
I don't understand this attitude and I find it insulting not only to those who have bothered to master their tools but also to younger engineers who are assumed to be too stupid or lazy to do the same.
If you want a best-in-class editor then you take the effort to learn Emacs, Vim, or perhaps one or two others. You don't declare that Notepad++ is good enough and you certainly don't, if you know what you're talking about, declare that Notepad++ won the Vim/Emacs holy war.
Call me a dinosaur but if your idea of software engineering is pushing a button to generate great glops of code that you don't understand then your idea of our profession is very different from mine.
