Customization  - 
 
I changed my global default for indent-tabs-mode to nil now and just re-enabled it for some specific modes. I got tired of having to disable it for every mode separately.  So far, I have only found a need to enable it for c-mode, sh-mode, and text-mode (on the fence about that last one).

Even other editors should have settings that can preserve the indentation. I actually prefer tabs over spaces because you can set your own tab width the way you prefer. That said, most of the projects that I work on use spaces instead of tabs, so I generally use spaces.
