Are young people using Vim?

Thu, 2017-10-05 20:49

I am used to modern text editors, like Sublime Text or Atom. I have tried VIM for a bit, but I have yet to spend time learning it. But I am worried that the spread love for VIM is only a matter of habit for people that have gotten used to it. Do younger people, with virgin minds, who have had sufficient exposure to Sublime Text (for example), still end up using VIM? Is it really that good?

I'm currently deciding on what kind of wallpaper I want for my linux machine. I want something I can look at which is useful like a list of the most common commands people run and their arguments.

Major Dutch retail company Bruna is using Linux Mint in their stores

Thu, 2017-10-05 16:20

So I just went to my local Bruna and looked at the computer screen they were using in the shop. It looked like an 'old' Windows XP computer, but when I looked closer they were using Linux Mint.

I asked the employee how long they have been using 'that' operating system, she replied: "you mean Linux? Well over a year now".

Bruna is a Dutch retailer operating 375 shops in the Netherlands which sells books, newspapers, magazines, stationery, computer software, and cards.

Wayland replacing Xorg?

Thu, 2017-10-05 16:04

I'm wondering what your ideas are about Wayland.. I've been using Linux with Xorg for some time now, and I'm seeing a shift in programmers focusing their (future) work (like Termite terminal) on Wayland (with X11-Compatibility) instead of X11.

What are your thoughts about this?
