Re: emacs vs. vi
Authored by: wkoffel on Feb 07, '03 02:23:35PM

Great idea for a macosxhints poll, don't you think?

Editor of Choice:
- vi
- emacs
- BBEdit
- TextEdit
- MSWord

(and maybe)

- AppleWorks
- pico
- ee
- vim
- xemacs
- SimpleText

Clearly the only correct answer is emacs, but I respect other people's ignorance. :)

Oh, and for the record, I'm a Mac geek from System 7 days, who transitioned to being a full UNIX geek and never thought I'd go back, until finally Apple caught up, and I'm back to an OSX geek. I'm in heaven!

Don't forget AlphaTK and, when it is released, AlphaX
