116192Re: Starting an online VIM vs Other Text Editors battle.. anyone interested?
- Aug 2, 2010Hey Nat,
I guess the undertones of the site is that "everyone is a winner" and
is a great showcase of showing what these awesome text editors are
When I started showing interest in using a "proper" text editor, there
was a myriad of flame wars of non-sensical, non-logical arguments
which plagued the forums. I understood that using one of these *could*
save me time, but there were no videos of amazingly talented people
using these editors. I *needed* something to inspire me to spend my
time learning it, but I never got it. I just had to take the risk, and
now I'm glad I did!
I wanted to mask the sentiments under a pseudo-competitive guise as
people naturally respond better to competition then the "everyone is a
winner" philosophy. It obviously didn't wash with you or
@CharlesCampbell as you have probably been witnesses to many idle
rantings of the "fan boys".
Hopefully now you can see my proposal is for the right reasons, and
will be a part of the spirit of competition for the right reasons?
Do I have two interests? :)
