  • Before you ask for something that is not emacs, you must first explain what you find as its faults.

    • Well I'm usually pretty fast at learning stuff. I tried to get to work with emacs three times (including last week). After two hours I can vaguely remember how to get around and do a few basic things. The next day it's gone no matter what.

      It simply won't get in. Whoever's idea that is of a usable interface doesn't come from my planet :)

      • Hmm. Sounds like people when they are beginning Perl. {grin}

        Yes, Emacs takes a bit to get familar. But once you're there... it's an amazing tool.

        • Well I picked up Perl a *lot* faster ;) I don't doubt that it may be an amazing tool, I just don't happen to have three spare weeks with nothing else to do :-/ A text editor should be easy to pick up. I don't care if I have to struggle to fine tune it later, but the basics should be so that at least I can start using it before I know more.

          And that's how it differs from Perl: "baby emacs" is already way too hard.
