I really like the idea of Kakoune and I think they're absolutely doing the modal editing and commands right, but it's absolute hell for anyone who is used to Vim due to all the muscle memory.
I'm trying IntelliJ right now, but I'll try gVim after, thanks!
Yup! Tried to learn it recently and I had to start writing it down on notecards because I kept vimming it.
I do wish they had a better intro like Vim for "Here's what you need to get started, and here's how to do common tasks"
I did a little write-up about using a Linux terminal in Windows if you wanna read about it. It's basically just making Windows Subsystem for Linux more convenient by creating something you can click/hotkey to open up a terminal emulator which is actually running from WSL:
This is currently what I use when I'm on Windows and using Vim
@m455b @codesections I thought I would be - I have a mac I used to use quite heavily for working in Rust/Haskell, but I do a fair amount of machine learning and having an okay-ish GPU in the machine and the opportunity to let it connect to an external one pushed me to using windows more and more.
Hoping the unix-like terminal is all I need to get the best of both! Terminal + window snapping would be good enough
