My slow switch to Emacs
Dated as .
I'm going to come out and say that I like Emacs. As a platform, not as an editor mind you.
I am using Evil as is probably to be expected. I have become so accustomed to Vim that without some sort of Vim emulation I cannot survive in another editor.
This is why I'm using Evil and I am slowly, but surely, using Emacs more and more, making little modifications that make it nicer and and more comfortable for me. I'll soon probably have to write a couple of plugins in order to achieve some Vim behaviour I like though, that'll be fun.
So I just wanted to share that. If I ever need to use Vim in a remote server or for pair programming, I'm open and if I need to use Emacs I'm also open, unless it's Emacs without Evil, in which case I am closed.
I have NO clue how Emacs users could use
C-f for moving right by one,
for back one,
C-n to move down one and
C-p to go up one. It's crazy, their
hands move ALL OVER the keyboard, and they say it's fine. Whoever says that is
either bored or crazy or both. Or something.
