Every time I hear about Emacs and tabs I've thought "who cares?" and never looked further. Thanks to Mickey Peterson's latest summary though (masteringemacs.org/article/wha), I finally tried... and it's actually quite good! I have a lightly-customised escreen configuration I use, but I might just replace it with tabs (particularly if I can figure out how to toggle display of the tab-bar itself).

All I use escreen for is windows and different stacks of recent buffers, so I'm not hard to please.

"DRM is a bit like ransomware, in that it encrypts data and demands payment to un-encrypt (decrypt) it. The main difference between DRM and ransomware is that ransomware is less particular about which files it encrypts — while #DRM (usually) only affects files that you legitimately purchased." ~ figosdev
