you know, there is a lot of shit about vi and emacs, but after working extensively with both; I came to the following conclusion..
The key sequence to save a file after editing..
- shift + :
- ctrl + x
Which one is easier?
And yes, emacs (emacs-23.1.tar.gz) is 41M and vim (vim-7.2.tar.bz2) is 6,87M (7035 KB), and that is indeed a big argument..
But my main pro emacs argument is the fact that the instructions are easy, convenient and most of all, more up to par with the modern usability standards.
