I regret to inform you that I am very much back on my #EXWM bullshit.

It turns out, the bullshit that I am very much back on is, in fact, flip-flopping in endless indecisiveness between Emacs and Acme.

@umgeher The pros and cons are probably in the details of each but it’s difficult to make direct comparisons: they’re both editors which also integrate with the system enough to work as a kind of shell onto Unix as an IDE. It’s like arguing whether pizza should be cut into circular sectors, or into rectangles.

@umgeher In that case, I think Russ Cox’s 23-minute A Tour of the Acme Editor would be the most succinct introduction to Acme. youtube.com/watch?v=dP1xVpMPn8

@gueorgui On Monday I might have suggested that it’s good that it doesn’t! 🤭
