I’m a programmer, and I’ve been using Emacs for about 10 years.

It’s great!

I have used many editors over the years: Notepad++, TextMate, Sublime Text 2 (which is pretty good), Atom (which is also pretty good!), Vim/Neovim/vi(m)… you get the idea. But none of them ever really clicked with me. They were all missing something that I couldn’t quite put my finger on until I started using Emacs.

Emacs has so much stuff in it that it can be intimidating at first glance; there are keybindings for everything
