Well there's a way to get around some of that on Windows. All the editors/IDEs/word processors I use all use the WordStar control sequences for editing purposes. I wrote an AutoHotKey script to translate the WordStar control sequences into the control sequences used by the 'appropriate' application. So Libre Office, jEdit, CodeBlocks, Notepad++, Eclipse and VS all appear to use the same control sequences when editing text. To make this work well, I also had to remapped my keyboard a bit. Cap Lock is now Control, the Alt key is now Cap Lock and the Control key is now the Alt key.
It's makes me faster editing text, which is (was, I'm retired now) really my main job as a code developer. Also, it's really not that difficult to write an AutoHotKey script to translate control/charater sequences. I just wish there was an AutoHotKey for Linux. There is a setup to use Python to do the same thing but it has noticeable lag compared to AutoHotKey.

My old boss was amazed at how fast I could translate a POCO from Visual studio into a DDL for Sql SSMS bouncing through notepad and excel without touching the mouse faster than he could read what was being read.

I suppose it depends on what type of school you mean. Four-year colleges teach more abstract concepts; a more generalized education that allows the graduate to adapt to changing environments. Community colleges focus more on students getting a job now, so courses are more focused on products. These shortcuts should be more ingrained than that, however, so let's go further back. In high school, very few students pay attention to anything except the opposite sex. Any earlier in school, and by the time students are starting a career, odds are that the entire interaction mechanism with computers will have changed yet again.
I see computer interaction as being a bit more like dressing yourself, tying your shoes or brushing teeth. These are really concepts that should be taught at home. Of course, Apple households will have habits that differ from Windows households. C'est la vie!
It's not schools' job. I mean sure, schools are there to teach the basics needed in life but the thing is, a programmer is, as long as it ain't a code monkey job, supposed to be self-reliant when solving problems so teaching them everything from breathing to keyboard shortcuts isn't needed. Any IDE worth it's salt displays it's keyboard shortcuts itself so someone who's able to teach themselves a thing or two (a skill that I consider a base requirement for programmers) can figure out themselves.
On the other hand, a reason why a co-worker of mine prefers too-terse C-style function names is that he never really learned to type. He's faster than my mom, that I admit, but not even that much faster.

A lot of people here do demonstrate against 5G. Their argument: Longtime "Health impacts" have not been researched and excluded for 5G.
Now my question: Was this the case for 3G or 4G?
My answer: No. So please throw away your 3/4G mobile phone and demonstrate against all mobile communication please
What is your opinion/expirience?
It does not solve my Problem, but it answers my question
My father told a (potentially apocryphal) story which (may or may not have) happened the 50s (?) regarding the dangers of radio signals.
An engineer was asked to participate in a study of the dangers of radio signals -- so he demonstrated the dangers to the committee (I don't recall the details, killing a mouse maybe).
Then the chairman responded (something along the lines of): "That's all well and good, but we want to assure people that it is safe."
From what I understand from the one show I watched on the "dangers of 5G" (key weird music), the issue has to do with the beam steering and higher relative power levels. I mean, you *do* have an RF device next to your brain. Is it sufficient power levels? Track the studies and especially who is paying for them - both pro and con.
Me? I'm far more concerned with the VB project I just inherited

If you want to supplement that income get yourself a rigged geiger counter like do-dad,
when the tin-foilers gather point it at some money and set it off:
- convinced their cash is radioactive they'll throw it away ... and well you collect it (into your lead lined bag of course - no need to take risks).
be kind though: demo the big notes as "more radioactive" [so the government can track and count them], ya should let them have the 1's and change so they can still buy food (and hats).
No, no - you need to rethink your marketing model. Just like inkjet printers, you want to fleece the client repeatedly for maximum profit. Dead people don't give repeat business - so you have to spend more to acquire new ones each time (and leave a trail of bodies which gets the authorities interested in the scam you are pulling).
