Sure, and so does xeyes.

Are you serious? My sarcasm-o-meter is giving contradictory readings...

xeyes

He's being patronizing and sarcastic because, well, as far as I can tell because I've knocked a hole in his argument and he has no constructive response he can give. Depressing.

It would be less depressing if I hadn't been banging on about the same subject in virtually every thread on the same subject here for *years* and if Daniel hadn't been reading those threads as well and hadn't completely ignored them or been just as patronizing in all of those.

I wouldn't make such a fuss, except, again, this workflow is the one in which I have earned every penny I have ever earned. And it's not at all a subtle or unlikely workflow, unlike the workflow of someone making their living from a remote instance of fucking xeyes.

(Why yes, Daniel *has* just made me very angry. Way to piss off your users and make your users suspect that the Wayland developers don't give a damn about how their actual *users* are using the system they're trying to replace, mate. Well done. Very well done. Do I have any confidence in Wayland at all? Not after *that* comment.)

Oh, I'm sorry. Obviously the Emacs in which I have done *all my work for the last fifteen years* and have earned *every penny I have ever earned* is only as important as bloody xeyes.

Sheesh. Talk about patronizing.

Yes, and I make a living out of vim. What you're saying, effectively, is that X11 is an abomination and inferior to SSH, just because vim under SSH is much more efficient than under an X11 terminal emulator.

What? I never said any such thing. If you want to invent words and put them in my mouth, you are welcome to, but that still doesn't mean I actually said them.

Right, it'd be putting words in your mouth. Just like you saying I think text scrolling is as pointless as xeyes, is putting words in my mouth. EOT I hope.
