Slowly learning emacs. Got the latest copy of Mastering Emacs, but looking at some blogs before I completely dive in.
This one is solid gold: https://github.com/redguardtoo/mastering-emacs-in-one-year-guide/blob/master/guide-en.org
It has great advice on how to approach and learn emacs, and is very motivating. The advice to use the configuration file of an expert make so much sense, since people either dive into the monumentally modified Spacemacs or Doom, which I feel has way too much, or they incrementally add features as it occurs to them, which means having a mediocre workflow for a long time as they learn it.

We want to take a moment to appreciate those members of the #FreeCAD community choosing to use latest dev/bleeding-edge version to help us test/confirm bugs + fixes.
These early adopters are CRUCIAL to the speed + quality of development. Demonstrating that coding isn't the primary #FLOSS contribution. Consider joining our small army of testers!
Obligatory: you'll need to adapt your workflow in order to anticipate catastrophic bugs (eg.by rolling back to a stable version if necessary)
nobody knows how real people live
people come into the puppy linux forums on a weekly basis like "yeah im running windows XP right now, Ive got 500MB of ram and an Athlon XP" or something like that looking to use puppy to keep their hardware going.
Every time some dev is like "nobody uses 32 bit PCs anymore just buy a new computer" i wanna fuckin scream
Wrote a short post about #blogging with #emacs, also includes a neat use of #git. https://ofthegoats.github.io/posts/blogging_emacs_git.html

I've actually grown to like #KDE much more. The amount of options and configuration can be very daunting for a beginner (like I was). At least now I don't have to live with libadwaita :)
Have great day, Fediverse!
