So far so Mac

by admin Email

I'm now experimenting with moving my development environment across to a Mac....

I use X-Windows to access my Linux server and run my favourite editor - Emacs.

This used to be a nightmare on a Mac - but now I've worked out how to fiddle with the keyboard settings (including changing the meta key mappings, and disabling the default "spaces" mappings for Ctrl-Left/Right keys) and things are good.

The Mac picked up my dual monitor setup (with code in a portrait monitor on the right) extremely easily. It's just as good as Xinerama!

I still find the mac a bit "mousey". Perhaps I'll find out all the keyboard shortcuts in time, though.
