@mdhughes I've had a brief look at Sublime Text 4, as someone who used to use ST3 for a long while. Sadly, the Package Control system remains as inscrutable as ever, and the thought of wading into editing JSON files to get it customised to my liking has me running for the exit. Sadly, I can't see them winning many converts from VS Code.
@mdhughes I think part of the speed difference are language servers and autocomplete stuff, and that ST4 would most likely slow down to the others if you could re-create the features and behaviors of the IDE’s with plugins.
I use IDE’s most of the time and BBEdit or nova when auto complete doesn’t matter
