@amdt Is that also a tiling WM? I want to love tiling WMs very much (esp. i3) but it just doesn't seem to make any sense to use it on a small display like the one on my Thinkpad X230. There's just not enough screen real estate for any meaningful tiling. How's your experience?
@gueorgui Yes, it uses Emacs’s own window splitting to position the X windows. I had the same experience on my X220. Even on my X1 Carbon, as you can see in that screenshot, I have to zoom the GitHub page out for it to fit on half the screen.
@amdt Makes sense! As far as I could tell, the Gnome desktop is so far the best fit for a small screen...
@amdt pros and cons?
@umgeher The pros and cons are probably in the details of each but it’s difficult to make direct comparisons: they’re both editors which also integrate with the system enough to work as a kind of shell onto Unix as an IDE. It’s like arguing whether pizza should be cut into circular sectors, or into rectangles.
@umgeher What do you use for an editor at the moment?
@amdt emacs... (since 2002)
@amdt wow! thanks so much!
@amdt That's nice, but does it have org-mode?
@gueorgui On Monday I might have suggested that it’s good that it doesn’t! 🤭
@amdt Get yourself together, man!!
@gueorgui I’m using Emacs again. 🥳
@amdt sorry... I use for erlang programming...
