Tom Ryder’s Arabesque is one of my favorite developer blogs because it’s almost always about how to get more out of your tools. In this case, he talks about a Vim feature that I’m eager to master — registers (think multiple clipboards for Vim). A colleague who happens to be an Emacs user and I were talking about the massive productivity advantages to be gained by mastering Unix text editors. They’re power tools built by and for people who live in their text editors all day over the past two or three decades. It’s tough for any old graphical editor to compete.
