It seems our boomer compatriots like keyboard only workflows and use weird windows 95 looking shit like eMacs and vim. Is this stuff worth it for zooms or not?
Like actually speaking. Is it just note taking app war autism or do they come with actual productivity gains?
slow bloatmaxxed shit
I'll take it.

this is the stupidest image i've seen on LULZ, i really wonder why you keep spamming it all day every day
Only geniune boomers and zoomers like autistic keyboard only shit
Millenials grew up using Windows
you must be 18 to post here
when I first used a computer in 1991 it had text editors with mouse support
you have to be over 50 to come from a time where text editors didn't have mouse support, or under 30 and part of the generation that grew up idolizing Linux
linux desktop popularity peaked in the 2000s
Honestly, the last version of Gnome 2 era Ubuntu was probably the absolute PEAK of desktop Linux within the context of its time. I have zero evidence but am 100% convinced Microsoft organized plants within the KDE and Gnome dev teams to throw a wrench into everything before their desktops got even better.
in other words, most people who are under 30 now would have been too young to have meaningfully noticed the linux hype 20 years ago
I am a Zoomer and before I got employed, I used to use neovim, but now I use pic related.
I only use nano for terminal editing, I'm sure if I was programming regularly I'd find vim or emacs useful but as is the value proposition in regards to time spent just isn't ideal.
Vim keybinds are lit ong no cap fr fr
But vim is a dog editor..
Vscode editor slaps but the mouse focus is kinda sus ngl
So just mix it up and do VSCode + Vim plugin and that shit SLAPS brah fr fr!! That combo is bussin
thinking about switching from vs code to emacs, sick of the electron bullshit of vs code and their support for C is somewhat lackluster

I'm a zoomer.
I use Arch
Window tiling on KDE
Heavily customized neovim
This nigga fucks.
Zommanon here. Full on tech meme:
-No social media
I use both, depends on the situation and my mood. If I am in for some full focus programming on some giant project Editor MACroS is the way to go. If I am editing a config file or doing some very light programming (Mostly bash stuff, although right now I am implementing most things in elisp) I use vim or OpenBSD vi. I know that most people my age can't even understand why would they use something other than Google Docs...
>No social media (I have no friends)
Why would I befriend zoomer idiots that can't even figure out how a file system works?
So you'd stop gooning to mid ching chongs
Is that a benefit though?
I use Vim, a tilling window manager and Dvorak. A friend of mine uses Emacs and another is trying to learn Dvorak as well. But most of the people I know just stick it to Vscode or Replit, probably because the don't know any better.
You don't need social media to keep contact with friends.
>You don't need social media to keep contact with friends.
Sure thing! You only need pigeons and papyrus
>I am implementing most things in elisp
Dump every single picture of her please, my stimulants will be kicking in soon
Oh, you are Horny for Cyra? Just search @xcyo (Not that I've been horny for her too and spent a whole night searching for her accounts...)
Zoomzoom here, I use emacs with vim binds.
Pretty similar to :
-Only matrix and discord
-Write rust in emacs at work (inb4. ywnbaw)
Yes but I don't really use any of its features. It's basically just an in terminal editor.
Do you want a job? If yes, then don't bother with vim or emacs. Intellij and vscode, or if you shit in the street notepad++.
If no then be a purist and code by scratching shit onto a clay tablet. Will probably be more productive than using vim.
I am a 22 year old zoomer and I use emacs for Lisp programming. The keybinds are stupid but the packages are very useful
only autistic homosexuals like the excruciating pain of using emacs and vim.
This. Most Vim and Emacs shills are NEETs who have never held a tech job and it shows. Try explaining the benefits of an almost 50 year old IDE when they want you to cloud sync your code with the rest of the company.
i use vim and nano
emacs is ehh
They use whatever everyone else at their workplace uses. Editor wars are dying out with millennials.
too much work, emacs and likes. i use vsc get the work done lightweight AF and modular. if you dont like it you probably are a NIGGY
actual zoomer here.
No. Most of us don't use VIM, only the weird nerdy kids, the elitists. Usually these guys act like they know a lot but are, in reality, glorified script kiddies.
True beginners will use something like Notepad++ or the IDLE shell.
Most of us use VSCode as it is the industry standard. Cope all you want about Microsoft and proprietary software, we want jobs, employers aren't gonna care or be impressed when you write "I use VIM to code" on your resume, they're gonna tell you to suck it up and use VSCode like everyone else.
People who use Vim as a flex are homosexuals. Wow, cool, you can't highlight text, debug, or set tests, and have to input a variety of commands just to save and exit. I sure wish my code editors made software development 10 times harder for no reason other than reddit upvotes and respect on homosexual image boards.
I was born in 98. I use emacs with evil mode and vs code with vim keybindings
why use emacs with evil? Why not just use vim?
Are there some features of emacs that you prefer?
No good reason I'm just used to all the custom keybindings I've set up in my emacs config over the year. I'm slowly moving towards just using vs code for everything.
>cloud sync your code
do zoomers know what git is?
Bold of you to assume a company would openly post their source code on github.
>muh private repo
companies love to buy into useless bullshit like OneDrive and shit
>git = github
ffs you really are retarded
Yet another 20yo zoomer chiming in. For basic terminal text editing I just use nano, for mildly more advanced text editing I use Notepad++ in Wine, and for programming for classes then VS2022 in a passthrough VM. I've been curious about at least Vim but I haven't bothered to give it a shot yet.
