So.. the M-x crispr command? 15:54, 12 April 2017 (UTC)ZZ

    You mean `ESC:crispr` ? 13:54, 15 April 2017 (UTC)

The first editors are not for machine-readable Text. But for sourcecode which is human-readable. 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. -- 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. 22:12, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

I'm surprised no female name is included. I mean, there must be lot of newspapers with female editors and some of them are likely hot. -- Hkmaly (talk) 02:06, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

Could CRISPR being the hottest editor refer to DNA computing?

"Sublime Text is the current "most popular" text editor according to Randall[citation needed]". 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 03:18, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

Have you tried turning it off and on again? 21:06, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
