I use kakoune for more than 6 month now and I like it a lot.
I never use vim anymore in my linux setup.
Sadly in my daily work I have to work on Windows platform and I still need to use vim every day.
It is painful to switch from kakoune to vim every day.
I would love to see kakoune being supported on windows so I could drop vim once for all. The use of ubuntu shell in windows 10 is awkward. A native port is needed.
One of the greatest advantage of vim over kakoune remains its portability.
Hope this can change on the following years.
