One of my friend's professors insisted they script in Emacs because that's what was "professional".

Those were fighting words.

I had to contains myself - nano or pico, sometimes gedit/pluma or with a bit of masochistic nostalgia vim, all the way.

e3 editor https://sites.google.com/site/e3editor/Home
it works
it's simple
it's 8bit clesn
it has vi,emacs.pico,nedit,word star modes
it has a built in simple calculator
it has a sed interface builtin
it's really really small <14KB 32bit version <18KB 64bit version
it got this small by being written in assembly code
this may or may not be a down side but it only runs in a VT
or terminal window

You know what they say, "operating system is just a boot loader for Emacs"

Is it possible to run vi or vim inside Emacs?

Interesting...

for me Google shows "About 777,000 results (1.00 seconds)", but the first page is almost entirely "Editor War" or "Vi vs Emacs comparisons", and I rarely check the second page.
I compared it now to DuckDuckGo, which did show some more relevant results at the top.

Apparently Google thinks I'm more interested in wars?

Although true, if I were to add quotation marks to my search, I wouldn't have had to ask the question... other than for the obvious joke.

Maybe we need a search engines category for the LQMCA?

I was torn between Leafpad and Mousepad. I prefer leafpad as I'm visually impaired and of the two, Leafpad allows me to increase font size. However, there is no option for opening recent documents under the File menu, as with mousepad. Either way, it will be interesting to see how this unfurls.

Voted vi but could have said vim. For some reason I also really like Kate for the non-coding stuff. I'm using it for my novel.

Emacs + melpa + helm* is an absolutely monster of functionality.

In quite subtle ways too.

Sometimes you don't realise how much it's doing. The Right Thing often just happens and you don't even pause to think, ahh, why did it just do what I wanted? You just accept the proffered item and carry on.
