I think if I could just have an Emacs that never lagged or dropped keystrokes, I wouldn't need any more computer. Don't need fancy graphics cards or a billion CPU cores, I just want to be able to type at full speed, with all my Emacs goodies, without having to wait for input to catch up :/
@jamesnvc You know what they say. Emacs is a good operating system that lacks a good text editor.
Have you considered alternatives?
@hund Yeah, I used vim & neovim for a while, but I just really like having all my mail and rss and PDFs and everything else in emacs.
@gopiandcode It definitely is some packages I'm using -- I mainly see it after it's been running for a while, in giant org files, with tons of background processes running...it's not unexpected, I just wish I had a slightly faster computer & Emacs had a more powerful threading model
