Does anyone else find it terribly ironic that Richard Matthew Stallman (aka RMS), inventor of EMACS (known for its extremely complex keyboard shortcut sequences), developed a crippling case of repetitive motion syndrome (aka RMS) in his hands that was so bad he was unable to write code for several years? Some might call that poetic justice. I just call it a warning to the wise, and ample justification for my preference for Vim over EMACS.
On the other hand, I really do wish Vim was written in Lisp, and used Lisp for its configuration files, the way EMACS does. Perhaps that’s a software fork project for the (distant?) future.
