Why Use Org Mode?

Regular Irreal readers know that I’m always talking up Org Mode and urging people to try it out. Many Org Mode users say they switched to Emacs just to get Org Mode. One of the things about Org Mode is that it has so many facets different folks can use it for non-overlapping purposes. I use it to manage my agenda, organize various projects, and for writing and posting my blog posts.

Gregor Riegler has his own answer to the question of what is Org Mode’s killer app? You’ll have to read his post to find out what that answer is but suffice to say, it allows him to replace 20 other apps with Org Mode.

So run on over to Riegler’s blog and read yet another reason you should be using Org Mode. If you’re already using Emacs you really have no excuse not to try it out. If you’re not already using Emacs, Org Mode might give you just the nudge you need.

    Thanks for the link! I was one of those long-time Vim users that got into Emacs initially just for org-mode.
