I've rebound prefix from ctrl+b to ctrl+z in tmux for the last ~7 years or so.
Today I switched back because obviously ctrl+z conflicts with program suspension. There's a workaround of doing ctrl+b,ctrl+z; but eh, I figure why not try the default binding?

So now I have one machine with ctrl+b as prefix and one with ctrl+z as prefix. I will fix that soon. Muscle memory is still there, but also on the machine with ctrl+z still bound I accidentally hit ctrl+b quite often.

@groovestomp ctrl+b is a serious stretch for my left hand, but then too right little finger to ctrl is also a stretch...
I hate ctrl+b

@gemlog ha ha. I never really considered that. I have monstrous hands so I guess I'll see if it poses an ergonomic problem.
