Centaur Emacs, The Only Good Emacs Distribution · The Kernal
No matter how much your try to fight it, you always come back to Emacs. It is not only an amazing text editor, but an amazing file manager, window manager, shell, and even browser. I personally have switched back to Emacs, as its productivity features and extensions geared towards writers are just unrivaled. However, I am not a fan of Doom Emacs. And I don’t want to spend 10+ hours perfecting my Emacs config. So, I set out on a quest, to find the Emacs distribution that fits my every need. And after around 20 minutes of digging, I found the perfect mix of vanilla Emacs, eye candy, and extra features. For me, that is Centaur Emacs. Centaur Emacs is a super easy, snappy, and configureable Emacs that doesn’t rock the boat too much. And since I have been spending so much time with it recently, I thought it fair to share my experience with you, and hopefully get your attention on this amazing Emacs distribution.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
