Discussion on: A Parade of Text Editors

I've been bouncing back and forth between VS Code and Sublime for a while. With all the bells and whistles, I can end up wasting so much time trying to get all my tools in order. Lately I've been using both editors with just the bare bones with an open terminal. For me, if I rely too heavily on extensions I start forgetting syntax and it becomes like texting without autocorrect where I'm like, "Wait, how do I spell that word again? Do I need a comma here?"

It's true. Not that we ever create tools that end up making us dumber (coughFacebookcough). But I suppose it's possible.
