I'm an aged (over 30) OS enthusiast. Previously, as a developer in a small work group, I became the sysadmin by default since I was the only developer with a dozen users in a growing AIX environment.

Early Linux adopter, installing Slackware with 30+ floppies. I've installed most variants of Unix, Linux, Plan9, mkLinux, NeXtSTEP 486, BSD/386, NetBSD, FreeBSD, and I'm still waiting on HURD :)

Using Windows, I am limited by Windows. In Unix, I'm only limited by my knowledge of Unix.

comment How can you achieve vi's `se ai` in Emacs?
it is mode dependant. What type of file do you want indented? Each mode will typically have its own indent variables. One might also want to address tabs vs. spaces.
