many others get stuck with a preferred editor/system/language; I guess it takes 
some real enthusiasm to switch from vi to emacs or jedit or brief. Years ago 
they switched my escape key from top right to top left (dec keyboards were 
weird); the body is very hard to retrain. I don't know what those synapse 
memories are called, bit they go very deep.
