Hick 叽喳:

     以前看杀哥的按键统计里好像就用方向键比较多, 反正方向键咱也不是不用,  C-n 系列也偶尔用, 个人还是喜欢 ace-jump 以及 abo-abo 那个改进的好像是 avy 的.  不同习惯, 不一定有对错, 优劣也是不同人不同键盘而不同的.

Stefan Monnier, previous emacs maintainer, doesn't use the {Ctrl+n, Ctrl+p, Ctrl+f, Ctrl+b} keys. See https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2016-03/msg00545.html

by the way, he doesn't touch type neither, nor does Richard Stallman.

the thread began here Why does the tutorial talk about C-n/C-p etc? https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2016-03/msg00402.html

i think the emacs cursor keys should be banished. They are very inefficient. One of the worst keybinding choices. I think they are not much better than random choice of keys as far as design goes.

suppose you are playing pacman. Do you want to use the arrow keys ← → ↑ ↓ or the {Ctrl+n, Ctrl+p, Ctrl+f, Ctrl+b}? There, is an aspect of efficiency.

People mention about how hands stay on home row. Better is inverted T or vim hjkl. 〔?see Keyboard Layout, Is Inverted Number Row Better?

but why people are loud on emacs keys? because:

  • ① a cult factor. The emacs flag must fly.

HABIT is the core element of your perception, your judgement, of the external world.

it's not just your muscle memory. But, the wires in your brain.

HABIT, as i learned over the years, plays a role in human life not just in petty software keyboard use, but also User Interface design, in programing practices (functional programing?), programing language perception, … no. Actually, habit is the railroad of behavior, HABIT is this elementary epic particle in human history, human culture, political divide, human evolution, and human destination. ?
