Yet another developer here who appreciates open source, privacy, and decentralization. Huge thank you to everyone who made this possible, it's really cool!

@person That it is! I decided to pull the trigger today after lurking on and off for some time.

@ixbo Welcome to the Fediverse!

Just a head up to make sure you take a little bit of time to curate your feeds by blocking contents/spams, it would make your stay much more comfortable! :akko_hi:

@ixbo Welcome! I'm new here too - it's nice to see more people joining. I'm a very late adopter to the activitypub/mastodon party. So... vim or emacs?

@ingsoc Neither! I actually can't stand people who don't use Atom. At this point, it would be impossible for me to give up that sweet, sweet 500ms typing latency and >500mb memory footprint.

@ingsoc But seriously, I use VS Code or Notepad++ at work. At home, it's usually the default Ubuntu GUI text editor. More rarely, Nano or Vim. So I guess Vim beats out Emacs for me so far, but not by much. I don't have anything against either.

@ixbo that's a same choice. I still throw out "vim or emacs?" during interviews if they ask if I have any questions. If anyone had a strong opinions, that's red (or maybe yellow?) flag

@ingsoc Haha, makes sense. Nothing wrong with being passionate about a text editor, but you wouldn't want someone so opinionated that it becomes a problem!

@ixbo I haven't used atom in years, but that sounds like what I remember...

@ixbo back when I used it, the "killer feature" was GH flavored markdown previews. Now all the cool kids have moved on to vs code or something. I'm a dinosaur with my vimrc
