I don't want to start another editor war here, so let me say up front
that if somebody likes a certain editor more than others, or find it
easier to use, then they should use it and never look back.  There's
no sense in arguing about taste.

However, personal taste notwithstanding, IMHO, no editor can compete with
Emacs in terms of power and wealth of features.  Non-believers should
read the gnu.emacs.help news group to get a feeling about the kind of
weird requests which get instant responses there with a name of option
to set or a few lines of ELisp code to put into your initialization
file (and usually, there's more than one solution to any given
problem).
