I like defaults

I try to keep my dotfiles simple and plugin-free. Wherever reasonable, I stick to defaults. If I feel at home with defaults, I feel at home anywhere.

Some configuration is fine. When it’s an integral part of the experience, switching themes and adding extensions can even be enjoyable.

But I don’t want to be conditioned to a setup of plugins upon minute adjustments that only works as intended in some certain pristine environment. I don’t want that urge to adjust every little knob when things don’t satisfy my sensitivities.

Whether it’s working on the bus or fixing a burning production, being instantly productive anywhere is invaluable. Moving around is frictionless. It’s very liberating.
