I picked up emacs in 1993 when I first got my hands on a unix system, and it was the only thing there that made remotely any sense. Fast forward to 2018, I'm still using emacs, and the upside is I haven't had to learn anything new in the intervening 25 years.

Please refrain to divert the discussion towards operating systems, we're talking about text editors here, for which ed is the standard.
