I am rapidly becoming hooked on Xemacs. I now understand why it’s considered the programmer’s editor to end all programmer’s editors…

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    But vi is the clean elegant simplicity of a Bauhaus (architecture, not the gothband for a change) design, versus the encrusted-with-doilies-and-gingerbread faux-Victorianism of emacs.

    Well, I finally figured out how to remove some of the more annoying frills, like the builtin mail program and usenet news reader.

    Plus is has a nice CVS interface.

    I may be a convert. We’ll see. I’ve been using it all day today, and I’m becoming hooked…
