Emacs, 2

Nice to see Emacs getting a bit of press recently. I’ve used it for almost 20 years now and it dominates my time at the keyboard. It isn’t perfect and I’m reluctant to recommend it but I wouldn’t want to be without it. Let me explain.

The best thing about Emacs is that it can do everything (including the things it can’t do yet). The worst thing about Emacs is finding out how it does anything. I wouldn’t call it discoverable. In fact, on several occasions, I’ve learned about Emacs by accident: you press the wrong key combination (easy to do when you’re holding down a couple of keys and stretching for a third) and, look, something interesting happens!

Emacs

If you are a professional writer – i.e., if someone else is getting paid to worry about how your words are formatted and printed – Emacs outshines all other editing software in approximately the same way that the noonday sun does the stars. It is not just bigger and brighter; it simply makes everything else vanish.
