I agree completely. The only nice thing is auto completion and those popups 
where you can navigate a class or argument list (but then, vim can do auto 
completion as well and code insight support is in development). I'd like to 
cite an old saying:

"Fast, fat computers breed slow, lazy programmers."

Midnight Commander, make, vim and a compiler is all you need (and we can 
discuss about the need for mc ;-)

But I fear that most programmers today are so used to adapt to their tools 
(IDE's) instead of adapting their tools to their need that they don't know 
any better.

God, I'm only 26 but think I sound like an old fart already :-(
