Comment 14 years and running (Score 1) 1215

Switched from Windows to Linux in 1999. Never looked back. Have been running several companies since then, cooperating happily with scores of customers in many areas. Never any real issues with file formats or the like. Run as many programs on the command line or in (n)curses as I can. Extremely efficient setup - I am stuck with Linux due to efficiency.

"Who needs textarea any more?" I do. I am writing this comment in VIM using the "I's All Text" extension for Firefox. I use my tool of choice (VIM) for almost everything I write, and I am not overjoyed with "solutions" trying to enforce other tools and behavior than the ones that help me the most. Freedom of choice is, at lest for me, very valuable.

The best way to avoid responsibility is to say, "I've got responsibilities."
