It seems like many of the forum members here have the technology background, so I added this new forum section about technology and computers.
I used to be a Linux user.
I had to switch to Windows after I injured my hands because there is no speech to text software for Linux. Edit: I’m back to Linux + Vim + i3 (with Emacs/Evil for Org Mode).
Are there any vim enthusiasts out there?
One of my favorite things in the past was using vim. For anyone who isn’t familiar with vim, it’s a text editor–kind of like Microsoft’s Notepad, except it’s possible to write a 500 page user manual about it.
The software has so many incredibly precise commands available, it feels like it creates a direct link between your brain and the computer screen. You can think of a complex set of movements that you want to happen, and your hands will fly over the keyboard, causing the editor to output your thoughts at many times the speed of a person using a normal text editor.
Here is a screenshot:
I’m curious if anyone else out there uses vim (or another similar program like emacs), and what you think of it. I think that using the program is a fantastic mental exercise.
