Depends on your skills, but I'd say around 6 months. It can, however, be shortened to 1-2 months if you use Emacs' Gilmour mode (M-x gil-mode) which is specifically designed to help with Gilmour style of guitar playing.

I hope I'm not the only one that fired up emacs to see if that was really a thing..

That's what I use Vi for (occasionally), but I code all in mcedit most of time?

Emacs rules...

That's O.K. with me, just wondered... (so there _IS_ an editor for everyone in Slackware )

Best regards,

All I'll say is that what you learn is what you use. And if you learn Emacs you're more likely to worship me since I look like RMS. (But I use vim)

Look like RMS, but use vim? You should be ashamed of yourself!

I think this thread's gone slightly off-topic.

I find emacs very convenient as an editor and file manager rolled into one. Not that vim doesn't have its place...

Gals and guys! Please press your fancy Emacs or vim keyboard shortcuts to leave that thread and start your own in Software section of LinuxQuestions.org or publish here your desktops if you saw any desktop in your lifetime behind your Emacs or vim windows.

I don't want to derail this thread so we can take it to PM if you want to share anything.

Thanks.....

No, because I don't want it to be above. But it is possible, of course.

Thanks!

I'm in no hurry by any means, I just play around with various desktop configs when I have time.
