I use vim 95% of the time that I am editing code and PyCharm when I need

Note that I only edit code about 4 hours a week. I also spend a fair amount
of time outside of editors, like poking at nodevember.org to try and find
their schedule data, or grepping svg files to make sure the object IDs are
set, or scanning a stack of paper and playing with image processing to ocr
and link png file names to rows in a db.

more time in an IDE so that they make better use of the time working with
