Today I asked my first-year bachelor Artificial Intelligence students what editors they use. Is geany that popular anywhere else? And what happened to the good old days of vs. ? 😉

@m4lvin wow, why is geany so popular? is it preinstalled in ubuntu? it's got as many votes as all the others combined.

@zalandocalrissian geany is pre-installed on all university computers and in a virtualbox image the students got in their first programming course, that should explain it partly. I also think it is a tradition via teaching assistants.

@m4lvin Lol it's okay, Emacs, I still love you. Sometimes.

@m4lvin I guess that geary comes pre installed on ubuntu. Still surprises me that so many have linux.

@yisraeldov We strongly encourage all our students to use linux. Or "the other big unix" if they must.

@m4lvin What school is this ? Back when I was in school not everyone had their own computer and we used the computer labs, mostly solaris.
