    1. For how long have you worked as a programmer?

    As a programmer, about 7 years, in the IT biz, over 20 years

    2. Any particular programming languages you mostly use?

    PHP, JavaScript, SQL, a bit of shell scripting

    3. For what purposes?

    mostly server-side web development, some client-side

    4. Which text editors do you use?

    Komodo Edit

    5. What defined your choice?

    Tried many, liked its features, speed, and price (free)

    6. Which text editors you might have been using before?

    PHPDeveloper, Apatana, NetBeans, Eclipse, Notepad++, to name a few

    7. Do you follow the other text editors updates?

    Very occasionally; usually when I hear a fellow developer mentioning something about an editor s/he likes

    8. Which text editors you DID NOT like? Why?

    I found Eclipse to be too sluggish, but that was a few years ago, and it may be better now for all I know

    9. What functions might some text editors be missing in your opinion?

    Built-in support for PHP XDebug (including Komodo Edit -- you have to pay for the IDE version to get it)

    1) About four years.
    2) Mix: JavaScript, HTML and CSS, Java, PHP, C and C++, VHDL.
    3) Website development, Android development, stand-alone applications, microprocessors, FPGAs.
    4) Vim (occasionally Eclipse).
    5) Ease of use, flexibility, extensibility, speed, probably tradition too because I work on Linux and Unix a lot.
    6) Eclipse (suppose that barely counts), Notepad++, few others that shipped with tools (mainly microcontrollers and FPGAs).
    7) No
    8) Emacs (too many combinations), Eclipse (too slow and cumbersome).
    9) Oddly phrased question, but Vim does everything possible, once configured. It can take a long long time to configure. Bar Emacs, most other editors lack a comprehensive means of doing everything from the keyboard.
    Great wit and madness are near allied, and fine a line their bounds divide.
