That is what I was doing on Windows 3.x and have done while coding in Mac OS X and Windows.
Also the reason I never quite adapted to UNIX mentally of VI/Emacs.
Even though I have spent enough years coding for UNIX that me and Emacs are quite old acquainted with each other.
I know the essential for when Emacs isn't available which is quite common on commercial UNIX installations, learned back when Xenix was still being sold and don't intend to learn more than that.
Thanks anyway, I know you had good intentions.
