hire me instead, i can’t program but i do use vi!
Is the anti-emacs bias company wide, or just you? Pure bigotry, or reasoned policy?
Just common sense, the way I see it.
That’s the smartest thing you’ve ever said :)
I need someone working for me who can get stuff done, not waste time waiting for their editor to swap into memory so they can fiddle with elisp scripts.
Wham! I’ll take your word for. Not ever having fallen on either side of the vi / emacs debate, I know only that it inspires great indignance on either side. I’d just hate to see you look past a great programmer due to his choice of editor…
“We’re a startup, we can’t afford to give you a workstation with half a gig just so your editor doesn’t swap in on every keystroke”
