Text Editors Data Update

Following up on a skim of text editor data from The Setup last summer, I thought I’d catch up now that the 2013 information is in.

Looks like after its 2012 surge, Emacs dipped steeply, while vim remained high and Sublime Text 2 grew in use (mentions) substantially. Among new, popular tools last year, Editorially has a single mention in the data, and Editorial doesn’t yet show up.

Meanwhile, interviewees at The Setup appear to remain remarkably unsympathetic to Windows Phone devices:

    iPads: 		145
    Androids: 		88
    Windows Phone:	1
