To us, here and now, it appears thus.

rants, ramblings and other things that make life worth living…

My emacs wishlist.

Every program attempts to expand until it can read mail. Those programs which cannot so expand are replaced by ones which can.

-Zawinski’s Law

Now that emacs has fulfilled its divine destiny via RMail, GNUS and various other add ons, the next step for emacs should obviously be something that most people have wished for – Multithreading. Emacs needs multithreading so badly that its almost impossible to do anything of significance especially with tramp comming included with emacs, I don’t have to wait till a file gets saved over the network. I might just want to start making more edits right away. Inferior process are fine, but emacs and particularly elisp is still in the days of DOS. With multicore cpu’s becoming commodity hardware, I think the biggest priority is to implement multithreading for emacs.

Thats all for now
