Exactly what I did and what gave me a boost in learning Emacs+Elisp and a fresh start. My old `.emacs' file was holding me back!

I wonder if I should do that. I'm deep into Spacemacs and wonder if I should go for a clean Emacs approach rather than the Vim bindings.

I abandoned vim bindings (evil-mode). There were too many edge cases where it didn't work, and where I had to customize it to make it work.

With a good keyboard setup (two Control keys on the left and right) Emacs keybindings aren't that bad. Actually I like them.
