Comment: Re:Joe, anyone? (Score 1) 1131 1131

I love joe, but I'm sure I would be fine with vi if I'd learned it (well) first. I use joe because it's small, fast, functional, and easy to use. On that scale,

joe > vi (not easy to use) > pico (not functional) > emacs (not small, fast, or easy to use)

I would have assumed most joe users felt the same. If I don't have joe, I use vi. I'd never dream of installing emacs or pico on a system I couldn't install joe on for some reason.

Comment: please, less science, more fluff (Score 3, Funny) 491 491

I am getting sick of all these incomprehensibly esoteric articles. I like science, but sometimes the posts on slashdot are just too technical for me. This article on stealing lunches is a case in point. The pages and pages of analyses, the incredibly detailed social models that they used to arrive at their conclusions, the dogs eating lunches... it's a bit much for the layperson to grasp in one sitting. Editors: could we please get something a little lighter next time?
