Re: [jasspa] CUA support
- I access Unix on a Windows PC all the time. And ME and Putty windows
both support mouse selection (which amounts to select-and-copy). And
then I can paste into a Windows app (including ME by middle-clicking).
And that suits me just fine. Sometimes it doesn't work and it drives me
nuts. (I find that I can't paste into a Unix app. I have to select
something there, and then go copy my selection again over in the other
window. Then it works again.) So I would hate having to worry about
TWO clipboards. I'm very happy with just the one!!
And I REALLY like the fact that cutting (killing) in ME amounts to
cutting to the clipboard.

and thousands of users' worth of experience behind it. (But OTOH it's
so boated and damned complicated to customize that I was driven to move
to ME and uemacs years ago. Even now, when it's decently runnable on
PCs, I stubbornly refuse to learn Lisp.)
