There are other options for a more efficient Emacs.

My understanding is that Emacs keyboard chords are not healthy.

>Use the commonly bound keys familiar to most people today. Ctrl+C for copy

Disgusting


hi, you might give it a try. Many who used emacs for 10 to 20 years wrote to say they absolutely love it and switched. You can see them in the testimonials section.

Matthew Fidler introduced a theme system, so you can change any key you don't like, or disable the Windows style shortcuts. He's also quick to answer questions or fix bugs. Almost always within a day.

PS Matthew Fidler has been working on the project in the past 4 years. It's also part of GNU Elpa. :D


Moreover, "commonly bound" need not be ergonomic. E.g.: qwerty.


thanks for the post!

by the way, there's earlier hackernews discussion at https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=695893
