‘There are few pieces of software as widely misunderstood as [#Emacs]. Emacs is frequently advertised and discussed as a text editor, but please be clear on this: Emacs is not just a text editor.’—Christoffer Stjernlöf, Why You Should Buy Into the Emacs Platform (https://two-wrongs.com/why-you-should-buy-into-the-emacs-platform).
@amdt this is a great article!
@dubst3pp4 Yeah, it’s a nice introduction to many perhaps less-used features of Emacs. 🙂
@amdt Emacs is not an editor. Emacs is a way to think about the world, and, as such, a way to think about editors. If you ask the question “What can Emacs do”, you ask a question without an answer, because Emacs does not, Emacs is done to.
Emacs just is.
