I used to think Emacs and Unix is the superior
way do things with a computer. I even felt
sorry for the poor bastards doing eclipsed Java
on Windows. But because I never thought me to
be a superior programmer to them, just a person
with much better taste in technology,
I actually thought it was a mystery why they
never realized what awesome stuff there is and
moved on!

Now I don't think in terms of what is superior
but rather in terms of computer personalities.
Styles make fights! And I have to admit that
I don't know any other personalities than the
Emacs/Unix one. So I can't say which is better
than the other.

What I've seen, for my style, I've not seen
anything remotely as good tho. For other
people's style, I now know that what I see,
some moron clicking on icons, scrolling tons of
tiny letters and skimming thru menus and
autocompletion lists, and this looks completely
bizarre, but is it actually a computer
personality behind all this jungle that makes
sense, possibly as much as mine?

I guess I'll never know for sure :)
