I was waiting for someone to say this. Merci beaucoup, Thomas!

That would be my choice on Windows, I think.

PS – what is the development status of SublimeText?

I remember seeing this joke back in the 1980’s:

The only Electron app I use now is GitHub Desktop, and that’s only because I’m lazy.

That just made me decide to start using git on cli immediately. I don’t want to be a git expert, but at least be competent enough to use it regardless what code storage platform I may choose.

And, yes, more emacs exploration is on the radar, though not for editing code, really.

More general cli practice for my linux transition.

I’d love to be able to move to Linux (especially elementary OS) but I’m too invested in Apple’s ecosystem.

I can’t get elementary OS to play nice with my iPhone and iPad and sync my emails, calendar, and contacts from iCloud. I also haven’t found apps that are as polished as the ones I use on my Mac with decent syncing yet (Nova, Pixlemator, Ulysses, Things, etc) and trying to get DaVinci Resolve working was a nightmare, the amount of time I had to spend in the terminal was insane (and don’t talk to me about updating graphics card drivers to make sure I had the correct ones installed). The last issue I had is that I need to run Microsoft Office and Teams for work.

For me Linux is something I use to power my servers and desktop Linux is more of an intreating hobby rather than something I’d use to get stuff done.

Just a note to add I’m not disparaging desktop Linux or anyones decision to use a particular distro. I’d love Linux to become mainstream as I believe we could do with another option that isn’t Apple or Microsoft. It’s just unfortunate that Linux falls short of what I need personally.
