re: Switching from Vim to Neovim VIEW POST

re: I never had the problem of having to use Linux (or even one special Linux) for anything - but I doubt that the client disapproves having a compiler...

It probably does in most cases, but because Neovim doesn't require stuff like that to be specifically enabled, you can guarantee it's there.

Ultimately the presence of Neovim is undoubtedly a good thing. It provides an alternative to Vim that's extremely easy to migrate to seamlessly. Also, the mere fact that it exists has spurred development along similar lines - Vim has been adding features that were pioneered by Neovim, so even if you stick with Vim you'll see some benefit.

I've also yet to do anything in vim where I thought, "I wish this terminal I'm using was inside my text editor"

I'm told the typical use case is a REPL, which makes sense to me, but haven't had the occasion to try it
