Presently, I am using vi, the editor to write bash/Bash scripts as part of a Big Data pipeline implementation. This story is of a typical day.
After a whole day of file editing using vi, I decided to draft an email using Outlook. After the email was done, I by habit pressed the ‘Esc’ key. And then I remembered that I was not using vi!!! Fortunately for me, Outlook threw up a dialog box asking conformation. Immediately I pressed the ‘cancel’ button and breathed a sign of relief. Then I clicked the ‘send’ button to safely send the email on its way.
Sometimes muscle memory is more powerful than the mind.
