Oh, the things Vim could teach Silicon Valley's code slingers

Re: The trouble with Emacs

The trouble with that it's an overly complicated operating system
Which is why I use microemacs. A version which has been following me around since the late 1980s. With only a few bug fixes for buffer sizes (screens can now be wider than 132 characters...). It ran on Windows (DOS window), Atari and anything that looked like Unix (so including MacOS). And I still run it on my arm, mips and x86 Linux systems - every one I have that has command line access.

All it does it edit files - quickly and simply.
