One of the oldest (if not the oldest) flame wars in newsgroups back in the glory day of rn and command lines was: Emacs v. vi. Who was the best editor, what editor real programmers used and so on. Apparently, this war has been settled once and for all through the amazingly smart and funny and sarcastic webcomic of xkcd.
Here it is in all its glory the definitive answer to the question of Emacs superiority …
Of course, xkcd is absolutely right in praising the virtues of Emacs, the only programming environment you will ever need. Once you get hooked by its appeal, there’s no escape, no going back 🙂
