con of mside why I don't use it:

The behaviour of the cursor on the end of the line. You cannot go behind the 
line as it is usual in almost every other editor. Martin says it is difficult to 
integrate which I find hard to understand. That behaviour of the cursor 
confuses me. The other editors are smarter in that way. And the editor is the 
most important thing you use when programming.
