Emacs Propaganda

Those who know me, know that my preferred code editing, e-mail client and general purpose tool has been, and still is emacs. Yes, emacs was created in 1975, and so it's an ancient concept. But, did you know that it's still actively being developed?

In fact, the latest release was just a few weeks ago, on June 2nd.

I just found a fairly graphical tour you can take of emacs here. Consider it the first bit of propaganda on the topic of emacs.

Go, read it, and perhaps your eyes will be open to the One True Path to editing.

Me, I'm off to go poke around the list of the latest features added.

    As a past user of both vi and emacs, emacs is very cool and capable of just about anything. But vi is also cool.

    For those of you on a windows platform and want something very light to do quick code editing with syntax highlighting, check out Notepad++.
    (But it's not nearly as geekiful as emacs or vi.)
