When I started out using Linux in my 20s I was a pretty loyal ViM and GNOME user.
In my late 20s and 30s I began o alternate between macOS and a variety of really stripped down, terminal-heavy environments (Xmonad, i3, etc.). Still primarily used ViM as my text editor though.

It's been an interesting journey.
