Is it silly that tmux is fun?

No, I don’t think it’s a bad thing to get a zing of excitement when you find a new tool that improves your life. Maybe you know what I mean – that feeling of happiness at saving time, remembering more easily how to do things, and satisfaction with a new workflow.

Recently I migrated from the venerable screen, to tmux, and whilst it’s one of those changes where the old tool had no real show-stopping problems, tmux immediately feels much cleaner and well thought-through.

I’ll leave you to read the docs and list of features yourself, but please do check this tool out if you’re an avid screen user. I’ve already got many more tmux sessions/windows/panes open than ever felt comfortable with screen, saving me a lot of time and effort when working remotely.
