Good day. - twee - 25-11-2018

Hello, my name is twee

my first experience with linux was booting operating systems off pen drives and dvds at school, in order to play games etc. Since then I have run solely Linux on my computers, first crunchbang, then elementary, then arch.

Now I run OpenBSD after disliking some of the choices with a lot of linux distributions , buf mostly just I wanted to explore :)

I have interests in privacy rights and security as well as philosphy and programming (particularly language implementation).

Currently I am experimenting with writing an interpreter for a basic like programming language (don't worry no goto yet ;) and am working on designs for a custom laptop. Also I am in a constant state of progress for my fvwm desktop setup (I want to get to complete monochrome one day) and my emacs config (I prefer it to vim)

That's all, I'm excited to be in this community!

Welcome to nixers and on your journey. I see that you made a couple of good decisions already.

what decisions in particular are you thinking of ?

RE: Good day. - jkl - 26-11-2018

Moving to BSD and preferring Emacs. ;-)

RE: Good day. - twee - 26-11-2018

Oh nice! A lot of the people I've seen in the BSD community seem to like vi more than Emacs - I guess because it is simpler? Glad that i am not the only one :D

RE: Good day. - jkl - 26-11-2018

Actually, because vi is the original BSD text editor while Emacs is, uh, not. And there is a lot of esoterics coupled with "but my precious keystrokes" talk.

RE: Good day. - twee - 26-11-2018

oh yeah, that is a good point.

i just like lisp a lot... thats why i use emacs

RE: Good day. - z3bra - 27-11-2018

OpenBSD has mg available for those that want a lightweight experience with emacs.
It looks nice and I would definitely try it! But my precious keystrokes...
