I'm a big Vim user myself, I've been using it for some years now and recently I've switched to NeoVim.

How does it compare to using straight vim? What made you choose emacs?

Having numbered lines were making neovim extremely slow when scrolling. That's it really, I like emacs built-in package installation though. Overall it's bloated and surprisingly slow with copy/pasting and opening files. Been looking at kakoune but I had a hard time configuring it.

Oh I never had any problems with this, what setting do you use in vim? I use:

set number
set relativenumber

I can't remember exactly, set number, a few plugins and that was about it. At first I thought it was the plugins but nope, just the "set number". I don't remember having problem before so it might has been a version that had the bug and they fixed it.

At the same time it led me to try something else, as long as i have vim-keybinding I'm happy.

Just vim. And a shell with cat and redirection for here documents.

Okay, the last part is blatant lie, have played around with that concept for fun though. I like vim. Vim made me a better person. Also: vivivi. pretty metal if you ask me.

Emacs, with minimal configuration. I am not picky about my text editor. I just want something that allows me to split windows and switch between files easily which emacs allows me to do.
