The case that makes sense to me is knowing how to use vi even when that's not your first choice (because some version of it is available by default almost everywhere), and there are some language-specific cases where certain editors are almost mandatory. Otherwise I feel people should learn one editor really well and want to use it for everything. I guess it helps to pick an editor that you can use everywhere. I think I'd go a bit nuts if I was regularly switching editors/features/key bindings.
Learn multiple editors very well, and you will have more tools available. :V
Some are better at some things than others, not all text editors are worth the effort.
Notepad for instance is pretty shit.
Notepad++ is nice, but has areas it lacks in, especially in the visuals department, and it's a pain to use it to access files on a remote system.
Atom.io is pretty, but can't open large files, however it does have the advantage of a ton of tools that make editing on a remote system easy as pie.
Vim is a solid editor, but lacks a bunch of mouse control that I feel is almost entirely required in the modern day. Especially when used through a remote shell.
I haven't found a single thing that Sublime can do that can't be replicated in Atom/Notepad++/Vim, so yeah. I'll stick with my three editors of choice. V:
