Well, I'll quibble with Word as the exemplar here, because
statistically no people use Word as a programming editor. But your
point is equally (or better) made inserting almost any programming
editor that runs in Windows. Perhaps most to the point: "many people
have a mental bobble when using RDi because they expect LPEX to act
like Eclipse's editor for Java".
Thus 'Word, or some other Windows app'.
Indeed, I think his point is different applications use different
keystrokes to do things. I'm sure they all have a historical reason.
Perhaps some/many youngsters (which I have to remind myself before my
children do, that I am no longer even close to qualifying as a youngster)
are MS-Windows natives, but lots of us were programming long before
MS-Windows gained ascendency.
I don't know if Buck said this first for sure, but I'll give him credit as
I really appreciate his contributions. I like the way expresses stuff:
- It's not religion, use what works for you.
But most of all, I find that "a man convinced
against his will is of the same opinion still."
