I switched off of Emacs a bunch of years back after most of the vendors moved the meta key into an awkward position. But after a few days pair programming with a proficient Emacs user, it's clear that I'm going to have to dust off the old muscle memory. What finally pushed me over the edge was watching his Emacs do a CVS history of a file, with each line color coded by age, and stamped with the last author and edit date. I'm not aware of a way to do that with vi/vim.
