Re: Fedora 12: Emacs is not for software development



I would argue otherwise, considering the flexibility of both vim and Emacs. Personally, I like Emacs, and I have a hard time dealing with vi and its derivatives. But, this really isn't the place to start YET ANOTHER Emacs vs. vi[m] vs. {INSERT YOUR PREFERRED EDITOR} flamewar.

Argue that on IRC, that's always more fun... ;)

Both vim and Emacs are obsolescent and hard to use. Kate FTW!
