Probably won't convince you, but ...

I consider the programming modes one of the 2 most "must have"
features.  

Actually, emacs' "weird ideas of what C code should look
like" is whatever you want.  There are about 1/2 dozen basic modes,
with different bracket and indent styles.  From there, it's simple to
customize to whatever you think emacs should look like.

And you also get 
- source code coloring
- indexes of functions
- automatic indentation, however you like it
- expansion of macros
- keystrokes to comment and uncomment code

With your "basic text editor", how would you even run a spell checker
on your code without getting false hits on every variable name?
