Ill effects of EMACS

with 3 comments

Every Emacs user has to admit this… Using emacs has a lot of disadvantages..

1. Suddenly your standard keyboard looks too big with unwanted keys… Especially the "Insert, home … page down", arrow keys , Num pad … Sometimes i feel like cutting the right side off my keyboard

2. Navigating in other word-processors like 'open office' becomes a tedious task…. to do something you have to use your mouse (sometimes)…

3. Its very addictive… Sometimes when u are discovering a new feature… it can distract you away from work.

Well if you have experienced anything like this … feel free to add it in the comments

  3. So true 🙂 Though I’m a student, missing a lecture is not as bad as missing work 😉
