And while I’m confessing to how green I am at basic computing tasks, I had the misfortune of needing to use vi recently. I know that Barry and Sarah swore by it, years ago, but the best I can do is swear *at* it.

    Once you learned it, it’d be difficult to go back!

    Also, at my new gig we use a MS stack, so I have a MBP running parallels, and we have mob programming station on a Mac Pro connected to a Windows VM…massive keyboard shortcut and inverse (“natural”) scrolling confusion. Also, none of it is VI.

    It’s bad enough switching between Windows (and “unnatural” scrolling) at work and the Mac (and “natural” scrolling) at home. Having keyboard commands and scroll direction vary based on what window has focus…. oy. [New gig, eh? Exciting!]
