@grantcuster curse you. I was not prepared to consider trying a new text editor again, but this is intriguing

@darth_mall heh, I tried it a bit today. The good news is if you're used to Vim, it immediately feels pretty familiar. It's definitely interesting. I'm going to keep trying it out.

@grantcuster The object-verb approach instead of verb-object is pretty appealing—I wonder how much you could replicate that using Vim's visual mode.

In theory I like the idea that it doesn't manage things like multiple windows, and instead defers to other tools like tmux for that. I run into all kinds of key-binding problems with vim splits + terminal/tmux splits.

I'm torn between trying it out, or just using this energy to dive more into Vim's manuals. Vim's big advantage is its ubiquity.

@grantcuster Also, the fact that there isn't a package for it on Ubuntu make me feel a little less inclined. I'm pretty lazy.

@darth_mall yea, that all seems very reasonable. It does feel a lot like visual mode. In some ways it feels like a very specific vimrc config + plugins. I agree that I really like how it handles buffers/windows (in my case I just want the window manager to take care of all that).
