From Vim to Emacs+Evil chaotic migration guide

I’ve been using Vim for 18 years, and for me it was the only option for serious text work (like programming or writing) because I’m totally addicted to modal text editing to the point that I feel crippled when I’ve to edit text in a non-modal editor. You may argue that programming is not about how fast you write and you would be right, but if you can imagine somebody programming on an on screen keyboard on a tablet, you know how modal editor users feel about non modal edition.

But as many Vimmers, I was always curious about Emacs (the enemy in the editor flamewars!), it’s operating-system-in-a-window and the Lisp virtual machines concepts but the non-modal editing and the low quality of the existing modal editing modes compared with Vim made me keep a sane distance from it.

Ledsm 1.0

La verdad es que la entrada para este programa la mantengo aquí por motivos sentimentales más que otra cosa. Este fue el primer programa que hice en C (lo estaba aprendiendo) para Linux. Es un pequeño monitor del sistema que indicará la carga de CPU o, alternativamente, de memoria RAM utilizando... las lucecitas del teclado a modo de barra de progreso. No funciona si se ejecuta desde X Windows (hay que ejecutarlo en consola, si después vamos a las X si funcionará). Puedes bajar las fuentes, el paquete Debian (del año catapún), o un RPM.
