It's easy to lose track of what's popular.

For micro, are your keybindings still close to its defaults, or have you customized them more to resemble another editor you've used?

vim for light editing, emacs in general

Have not customized key bindings.  I use it from a c9 instance (ff window), so key bindings are a bit messy to begin with there, so I just use the default settings.

CTRL+s = save
CTRL+q or esc = quit

LOL, indeed...!!!

Hi MikeCindi, nightflier. I've never stopped lurking around here, just haven't had a VL install for some time, been on Slackware since I got a UEFI-only laptop, so don't have so many answers now...  ;D

Can't disable that nonsense in the BIOS?

Not on this machine, sadly, I see many new notebooks are coming out with no option to disable UEFI at all.
