here's more than anyone should want to read about text editors.
TLDR I think gedit is great.

@akstuhl This was a great post Andy — thanks for sharing your journey on finding a text editor.

The legibility point you made is _so_ crucial — especially with something you're using day to day. As someone at my work says: "Know thy tools!" (but even that can be tricky)

It's also great that you've highlighted the academic side of using text editors which honestly feels underrepresented & unacknowledged (I honestly didn't think of it until you've brought it up).

Thanks again!

@cj thanks! your replies on here made it feel like it'd be worthwhile to reflect more on this process in writing, and I'm glad I did. grateful for the interest and the close read!
