But what he actually states is:

Anyway, what immediately rang a bell with me is the hyperbole this editor is marketed with. Mark Pilgrim quoted very similar hyperbole.

What I don't understand is that people actually believe that a full-screen editor will matter. The choice of an editor (or word processor, or whatever) seems almost irrelevant. There are just too many other, way more troublesome hurdles between "you and your text".
