Talk:1823: Hottest Editors
So Randall is saying that in 2005 Vim as the most popular editor, and no Emacs user bat an eye? I came here to see why, highly disappointed 188.8.131.52 00:18, 5 January 2020 (UTC)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CRISPR, a procaryotic immune defense system that, coupled with Cas9, has been used by molecular biologists as a technology for precise edition of a the genome of virtually any organism. 184.108.40.206 14:59, 12 April 2017 (UTC) LinVl
So.. the M-x crispr command? 220.127.116.11 15:54, 12 April 2017 (UTC)ZZ
You mean `ESC:crispr` ? 18.104.22.168 13:54, 15 April 2017 (UTC)
The first editors are not for machine-readable Text. But for sourcecode which is human-readable.22.214.171.124 16:49, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
- Well, the compiler or interpreter can hopefully read your source code, so in some sense it's machine-readable :P. --126.96.36.199 18:13, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
i noticed the article fails to mention the comic declaring vim as the winner in 2005... kind of a huge oversight. mayhaps there is bias in the author of this wiki? mayhaps the author is a huge emacs fan?
- Maybe he's alluding to this with CRISPR-VIM in 2025.162.158.74.51 22:12, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
- As a 30+ year Emacs user, I too wanted to know why vim was declared the winner. Is there some sort of objective basis for the declaration, or is it just a joke in the context of Emacs versus vi debate STILL going on? 188.8.131.52 19:33, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Could CRISPR being the hottest editor refer to DNA computing? https://www.britannica.com/technology/DNA-computing
"Sublime Text is the current "most popular" text editor according to Randall". Citation needed? Someone should link that phrase to this comic then, LOL!
And I want to mention, this site has been looking all wrong and messed up on my iPad 1 for the last week or two. The entire left side is missing, being relegated to looking wrong below, the logo is gone, the buttons are in some different Times-looking font, and this comment text box is only using the centre half of the screen, horizontally. It's like a style sheet got corrupted. Or it's been made prejudiced against older devices and OSes. :) - NiceGuy1 184.108.40.206 03:18, 14 April 2017 (UTC) I finally signed up! This comment is mine. (and the site was fixed, maybe when it went down for maintenance?) NiceGuy1 (talk) 05:45, 13 June 2017 (UTC)
- Have you tried turning it off and on again? 220.127.116.11 21:06, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
A modal editor with a modal modem : In the days of Hayes modems, using "+" in vi to move down a line (similar to "j") would not always work because "+++" sent in a short time period changes the modem from data mode to command mode. One could imagine a future Tesla having a debug mode entered through a similar key sequence.
- "Vim will make a comeback in DNA editing, thus having 'won' the battle with Emacs" - Why would Vim only win the battle with Emacs in 2025, when, according to the chart, Vim already was the hottest editor in 2005 (which Emacs never was)? --YMS (talk) 15:07, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
So CRISPR _was_ the hottest editor in 2020 all right. 18.104.22.168 17:00, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
I'm from the year 2020 to ask: ARE THERE ANY BAGELS LEFT?!?! But seriously, CRISPR is not the hottest editor of 2020. Maybe in 2025? --22.214.171.124 19:09, 2 June 2021 (UTC)
