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.
  • ② HABIT. HABIT. HABIT. HABIT.

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. ?
