Interview by Drew DeVault for Sourcehut.
@neauoire Love it!
Left (the C version) is one of the reasons I currently use micro instead of nano (it taught me that using the mouse in a text editor is good for productivity). (ssh is part of why I use micro instead of left)
@neauoire once upon a time, I put #plan9 on a raspberry pi and used it a bit (but eventually switched because I couldn't figure out the wifi (I use that pi for displaying my song website on my piano)). Mouse-chording is interesting (I loved using it for search in left), but given how much I use touchscreen devices (pinephone), I don't see it becoming part of my workflow.
@zachdecook Acme runs on linux through Plan9Port if you're willing to jump through the hoops.
I use left as my daily driver for the past 6 months, and I doubt I'll ever use another text editor at this point.
