With Vim I program
When caps lock is I am lost
Anger key must go
I hate the caps lock button.
It does have its uses, and no, not only for YELLING IN EMAILS, but also for accessibility.
Today I just had enough with pressing it by accident in Vim, so I decided to disable it at the OS level. It turns out it’s super easy in Ubuntu 13.04:
All Settings > Keyboard Layout > Options > And choose caps lock is disabled
Alternatively you could map the caps lock to the escape key for Vim only. I prefer getting rid of it completely though. Happy coding!
