As of late, I’ve really been wanting to switch to Submlime Text from Vim. It’s really fast, has a ton of features, but I just can’t bring myself to do it. Often, I’ll go to do something, and find the Vintage plugin doesn’t have the feature I’m looking for — like inline-replace (R in command mode.) I’m sure there are ways of just turing on overtype, but I’ll be it’s some kind of “chord-like” keystroke.
On the other hand, the plugin interface is really nice. I enjoy using Python and extending Sublime’s functionality (more like one step up from a macro, when I make one.) But overall, Sublime is a fantastic editor. I just can’t make myself switch. /sigh
I’ve been trying to find a good resource for learning ASP.NET and C# for a little while, but find that it is virtually impossible to do so unless you have Visual Studio. Personally, I cannot stand Visual Studio. Nor do I enjoy IDEs in general. They always seems so cluttered and bulky. I find that I spend more time learning the IDE than the language. When I want to learn a language or framework, I don’t want some of the features to be obfuscated from me. Well, maybe that’s not alwasys true. In this case, it is.
The Mono Project is a good start; however, in my experience, I can’t take a lesson from a book and have it work the same in Mono. Meh…
