+## Preferences
+
+I prefer to use [Lynx][] along with [Emacs][] (via
+`emacsclient`) to work with the wikis.  (Note the &ldaquo;Local
+variables&rdaquo; section below.)
+
+The things I dislike in the wiki engines are:
+
+* the use of home-brew specialized version control systems
+  &mdash; while there're a lot of much more developed general
+  purpose ones;
+
+* oversimplified syntax
+  &mdash; which (to some extent) precludes more sophisticated
+  forms of automated processing; in particular, this forces one
+  to reformat the material, once complete, to, say, prepare a
+  book, or an article, or slides.
+
+Out of all the wiki engines I'm familiar with, only Ikiwiki is
+free of the first of these.  I hope that it will support more
+elaborate syntaxes eventually.
