Don't listen to these people.

They follow a dangerous cult.

    You beat me to it morgon :-D

    When a sysadmin on Solaris, my favourite emacs hack was to remove the damn thing - one of 2 scenarios kept recurring (both directly traceable to emacs):

    • filling /tmp ... causing kernel panic.
    • process table filling up - preventing any other operation - self-evidently a hard reset was always required as the fix

    A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))

    Perl and Emacs are very similar - kitchen sink philosophy.

    VI falls in line with Unix toolbox philosophy.

    RDBMSes are a similar software prison to Perl and Emacs.

    Never forget: the car is in the cdr, not the cdr in the car
