It seems like many of the forum members here have the technology background, so I added this new forum section about technology and computers.
I used to be a Linux user. I had to switch to Windows after I injured my hands because there is no speech to text software for Linux.
Are there any vim enthusiasts out there?
One of my favorite things in the past was using vim. For anyone who isn't familiar with vim, it's a text editor--kind of like Microsoft's Notepad, except it's possible to write a 500 page user manual about it.
The software has so many incredibly precise commands available, it feels like it creates a direct link between your brain and the computer screen. You can think of a complex set of movements that you want to happen, and your hands will fly over the keyboard, causing the editor to output your thoughts at many times the speed of a person using a normal text editor.
Here is a screenshot:
I'm curious if anyone else out there uses vim (or another similar program like emacs), and what you think of it. I think that using the program is a fantastic mental exercise.
