Default Making Emacs popular again [lwn article]

A very interesting read about emacs's decline https://lwn.net/Articles/819452/

In my company, emacs and vim users are 50:50 each. We have also a marginal number of vscode users.

What's used in your company for coding?

Does any of those users at your company use them in gui mode? That seemed to be what the focus of the discussion was about, worrying about rounded corners in the gui part.

Welcome to daemonforums

That is what struck me about the article too. I mean, I get that for attracting new users a nice- or familiar-looking gui could help. But if I read it right, it seemed like a lot of those very experineced Emacs users in the discussion used it in gui mode themselves. That really surprised me.

where I work, most people use eclipse on Windows. I use vim (30%) or emacs (70%) depending upon what I need to do.
