Again, I am going to try to push through this, but the first impressions I’m getting here is that emacs is abandonware. Tier-1 menus that don’t work. Documentation that’s totally untested, inconsistent and full of dead links and weirdly dated terminology (“visit new file”?) This software has not cared at all about new users’ first impressions in a really, really long time, if ever.
@jplebreton @abbienormal @angdraug @mhoye from restrictions made by devs. Basic example is it is free software, so you can mess with your code however you want, but its not only about code availability. Compared to vim Emacs has greater ways to extend itself, its not "limited" to vimscript and what devs let you "script", almost everything is changeable.
For people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS).
