This is the story of how I moved from Vim to Emacs and then back again. It’s a story of modes, plugins, stock configs, mobile devices and eBooks. Why switch to Emacs? My initial interest for Emacs was triggered by a blog post about org-mode. Org mode looked like the plain text productivity solution I had been looking for for a long time. Apart from everything being plain text based, the functionality offered covered most of my bases.
