EBD defined

I find to my surprise that I’ve not posted here before about EBD. So, here goes… Over the years I’ve noticed that people who are exposed to Emacs for an extended period of time become unable to use other software. I don’t just mean that they refuse to use other text editors; I mean that they cannot tolerate any non-Emacs interface for any task. They read news in Emacs. They read their e-mail in Emacs.


I cut myself really badly while shaving the other day. If anyone asks me, I’m going to say I got it in a hacker knife fight over whether vi or emacs is the better text editor.
