@cubiclesocial - dual monitors are a must for someone who needs dual monitors and can afford both the space and the cost. Number of monitors doesn't define how serious a developer is. Imagine being space- or money-constrained, in a situation where a 2nd monitor won't fit the location or the budget. Imagine being stuck in a work-from-home situation where the at-home space is a small corner of a bedroom. Imagine enjoying working on only one monitor. One can still be quite serious with a single monitor.

As far as what you need from your text editor? Cool that you found an editor that works for you, just as @laurieontech found one that works for her. I see no need to throw shade on someone else's choices.
