Living with only Emacs and a browser

January 21, 2019 ☼ emacs | #

I was thinking earlier about trying to get by with only Emacs and a browser.

How much of my general daily computer work1 could be done primarily with those two apps? Not enough, but it’s a fun thought experiment that may turn into a real experiment.

After a quick pass through my Applications folder, here are the apps I (currently) consider must haves…

So what does this long list-that-contains-way-more-than-just-emacs-and-a-browser mean I leave behind?

I may try it for a few days and see what happens.
