IDEs, big memory footprint, yes.

IDEs, big startup cost, yes.

IDEs, vastly more supportive, useful software development functionality
than editors, especially for debugging, yes.

It's that last one, the one about getting working software developed
faster, that is the one that has moved me away from Emacs to IDEs. But
everyone to their own, there is no universal truth in this arena.
