I don't think it's black and white as you make it out to be. When
I was programming with JVM languages (Clojure, Scala, a bit of
Java) I used Eclipse. I found that to be the right approach for
those languages because everything is done in terms of projects.
You can offload the management of your projects to the IDE. When
I use D, I think in terms of individual files, and the
cost-benefit analysis comes out in favor of opening the files in
a text editor.
This is not to say that there is anything wrong with using an
IDE, it's simply a matter of preference. I have trouble seeing
how an IDE is going to make anyone a better programmer. Perhaps a
bit more productive, but carrying along the cost of using the
IDE, as opposed to simply opening a file and typing. ed and vi
have little in common with Emacs or Atom. Many C++ programmers
have moved from using an IDE to using Vim, Emacs, and Atom the
last few years. You might wish to check out this 10-minute
presentation from the recent Emacs conf:
It's definitely not 1970's technology.
