In Greg Lehey's book, he states that he feels emacs is easier to learn
and more powerful than VI. Obviously it is more powerful, but does
anyone think it is also easier to learn? It *seems* to me than it
is easier to learn one- or two-letter commands than keystroke combinations,
especially when it takes more than one combination. Like i said, i don't want
to start a war here, but i am a student and i want to develop solid skills
with a good, powerful editor. Right now, i'm trying to decide between
these two. I know emacs is more powerful, but i also know that power
comes with a price.
Sorry to be hitting the questions list so hard, but we got hit with a snowstorm
and i have nothing else to do today ;-)
