A familiar work environment, perhaps?

I ditched GNOME a long while ago myself and did the same with KDE but
somehow can't get myself to ditch Xfce and get back to a hand-rolled
.xinitrc like I used to use a couple of decades ago ... go figure.

It's all really a matter of inertia.
Or muscle memory.

Going off-topic

In what language? And what educational level of prose?

I am a touch typist, certified, mind you, and hit somewhere between 135
and 140 cpm (including spaces and punctuation but no funny accents) on a
mechanical typewriter way back in secondary school at the exam. In my
native language, that works out to about 17 or 18 words for a normal
newspaper article. In English, I thinks it's more like 20. In German
it'd be even less, probably around 15. In Japanese ... who knows.

Hope this helps,
