    Yeah, that... religious war can be pretty rough sometimes. I also
    prefer not to get myself involved in any zealotry when it comes to text editors. I always take the stance that: "I use what works for me!" and leave it at that.

    Yeah. Surprisingly, there was never a similar debate on wysiwyg editors in the html web days. I suppose those days didn't last long enough.

    Desktops nowadays tend to be used for specific purposes. Unless you have a docking station for a laptop (which for most intents turns the mobile laptop into a non-mobile desktop device) a desktop allows for usage of multiple dispays and other devices that are better off being stationary.

    A cheap docking solution is to simply plug in a keyboard, mouse, and the external monitor. They also sell docking adapters where you only plug in one or two wires and you get a complete set of docked ports (video, audio, network, keyboard, mouse, etc).

    You no longer need a proprietary docking solution.

    Especially now with USB-C: you can get power, video, USB, memory card I/O, all in one little dongle.

    Haven't had much luck with the USB-C based docks at work. Sometimes
    video locks up, and have to open the laptop and see that it just hung on
    the dock... sometimes power charging doesn't work and the laptop just dies.

    At home, I have the charger directly a usb + hdmi through my kvm at my
    desk, which does good enough. I'm using a single large monitor so it
    works well enough for my use lately.

    Yup, probably. Imagine some emacs and vim guys have been duking it out since the 80s, that's intergenerational warfare I tell you. Haha!

    ... Perhaps not so happy.

    It's the crusades of the computer world. Just imagine if there was a competitor to the abacus.
