Testing the Waters With Emacs

Starting a journey alongside Emacs
A few days ago I started to think about transitioning from Vim to GNU Emacs. As a Vim user for more than 6 years, considering the Holy Wars, I should’ve got skinned alive. I have tried Emacs in the past, but to no avail. I found the switch to be a little obtuse, as in Vim you’re used to working with multiple modes, one-key-commands, operators and motions, while Emacs is based on using (a lot of) key combinations and modifier keys to get the job done.
