You can assign keys to (every?) actions in Eclipse. Komodo has a vim  
key mode. I rarely use my mouse in Visual Studio - it has key presses  
too! ( oooh, modern technology didn't stop at 1991! ;)

But do they ( vim and emacs )  do integrated task management  
(Bugzilla, Trac...)? Integrated debugging? Show documentation for  
modules/classes outside of the file you're editing - without any key  
presses? Let you know you've made a mistake with syntax/grammar/ 
method-calls before you save the document and run it?


PS can somebody rustle me up an eohippus instead of a pony?
