Now I know…

evim (vim’s “easy” mode) doesn’t work well if you can’t run vim in GUI mode, because if you’re in console, you can’t use ctrl+c, ctrl+z, etc.

emacs’ CUA mode works fine on stanford’s machines though.

honestly, I can’t judge *nix editors because I haven’t used them well enough.  I’m not sure I ever will, despite multiple camps claiming that i’m inefficient.  I don’t know if I can overstep the barrier–even if I do take the trouble to get used to them, it’s still bad because I’m doing everything else in “standard” editors.  It’d be like transitioning from colemak to qwerty…and back…each day.  Maybe I will sometime.  …maybe.


then again, Visual Studio is the gaming industry standard.
