the ability to improve or
customize yhour experience, then emacs probably isnt' the idea
if you want the ability (but not the requirement) to be a power user
and basically an evironment that you can LIVE in
for everything, if you want, Emacs is the way to go
The Emacs key bindings are available everywhere
Bash, Sun boot prom, even Eclipse has a mode that
so it's a good skill to use.
