This is one of the first times I get lost in stupid parentheses :) I have heard of it, yet rarely seen it :D

What editor is that?

Lovely, really nice! :) I would like to test XFCE some day, is it hard to set up (and to get a decent setup)?

I'm also spotting some Vimperator going on in your Firefox, Vimperator-brofist :D

Menus should've been hidden though imo.

Xfce is super easy to get set up, on ArchLinux it's as simple as installing the xfce4 group, and probably xfce4-goodies for some nice extras, and that gives you everything you need for a comfortable desktop environment.

Easy as to customize, although limited in some ways (but surprisingly few). Most of it is setting up panels how you like, which is just dragging and dropping plugins and tweaking them lol :)

I've actually started using it with Compiz too, but since Xfwm is fairly minimal I don't think you lose anything by doing so, which is nice.

*brofist* loving Vimperator always, been using it for years now. You're right that menus are mostly unneeded, but I think I came across some items that weren't accessible from Vimperator (even through `emenu`). All good either way though!

Cool thanks for the explaination, prob going to test it on one of my spare laptops when I got some free time :p

And yeah, not everything is accessible it seems, but atleast it's easy to show/hide the menubar quickly :)

I thought you belonged to the Church of Emacs! What happened Zane? Vim Scheme and .Xdefaults please.

Oh how I miss Emacs! I gave it up for a while and tried out Sublime Text 2 (which is amazing) before moving back to good ol' Vim. The number 1 reason for the switch is the fact that Emacs was just too slow! Maybe my .emacs was just getting too bogged down but I could feel the GC pausing as I typed, and for an editor that just isn't gonna fly. In the brief moments of lucidity I have I can't afford to be held back by my editor! I definitely don't rule out the possibility of going back in the future though, I'm still crazy for Lisp and Emacs is a beautiful environment to work in :D I'm hopeful for the multi-threading work as well as the possible Guile VM ports though *crosses fingers*.

The Vim colorscheme is "molokai", available at [link] although I think I may have edited the background color to be darker.

As I'm using Xfce Terminal my colors are set up via the settings UI rather than .Xdefaults, I've pasted the relevant parts at [link] in case someone else wants to use them or convert them.

:D

yup the emacs bloat is def an issue, i recently tuned my setup for performance and managed to remove some specific pieces that were a problem performance wise, as with all things emacs i think you get what you put in performance wise. it is very easy to let it get out of control though, i am as well looking forward to the future of emacs in this regard...

Ah the bloat factor! I understand. Emacs can be a beast at times. I use Emacs predominantly for Latex and org mode. On the fly editing and source code stuff are all carried out with vim. Of course Vim has latex plugin and all, but I have been using Emacs for Latex for a long long time. It's not easy to do the switch.

Anyway, I thought the vim scheme might be molokai, but the darker background sure did make me unsure. And thanks again for the Terminal colors.

Apart from that hope all is well with you mate. Don't know if you are a cricket fan, but I sure enjoyed NZ defeating Australia a couple of days back. I was watching the last hour or so live and the tension was getting to me.

Thanks again for your reply mate.

Ah I sure miss org-mode too! Emacs never ceases to amaze me, in fact that's Lisp in general I think, there's just something about it.. I don't watch cricket myself but I know a few people who enjoyed that game :D Cheers!
