comment How to have quicker launch and lesser memory footprint using IntelliJ Idea?
Trying to tune the VM to get IntelliJ to start up quicker only makes sense if you are starting it many times a day. I suggest that you tune the VM size for performance after its started and keep it running.

comment What justifies the use of an IDE versus a standard editor?
Once you add all those bells and whistles to emacs (or any editor for that matter) what you have is an IDE. Integrated-Development-Environment. I compare it to buying a cake from a bakery (IDE) versus making it from scratch (Tricked out editor)
