Hi all,

I have skirted with Emacs a number of times over the years. Last time was 2017 with Spacemacs. This year I thought I’d try out Doom Emacs (https://github.com/hlissner/doom-emacs).

I have been pleasantly surprised in how well it works. Orgmode as many know is just phenomenal. I’m using it as my main workstation at the moment, so all my writing, meetings, todo’s are in emacs. This is working extrmely well and I’m not missing the apps I’ve sidelined. The power of links and export to PDF via LaTeX, plus some very well designed html exporters is making things pretty easy. Even org-tree-slide mode for simple online presentations has all been good.

There is of course a fairly sharp learning curve with emacs, but the doom distro is well put together and easy to use. It’ll be interesting how it scales and when/if I hit limitations.

I wondered if anyone else is using doom?
