Is there any reason not to use nvim over vim at this point? I'm still using the latter but am considering switching. I want to be considered ``tech savvy'' by my peers.
I'll be totally honest for once and confess that I use Brackets for everything.

You should use nvi.
I recently switched from Vim to Emacs (evil-mode), and I've gotta say that it's really good. Nvim's got some cool stuff going for it, and I'd say that it comes down to which extension language you want to use. I've been enjoying elisp, but at the same time I haven't used Lua, so if you're already experienced in that then Nvim might be a better choice.
With Nvim, you wouldn't have the expectation that it will be installed on a given *nix machine, although it's not a very big deal since Nvim is backwards compatible with Vim.
That's one of the reasons I've wanted to use Emacs. I might try with evil-mode.
