True, but on the flip side, when you're using it as a personal organizer, an email client, or anything else, then all of the editing functions just work as you'd expect. No need to get used to the idiosyncrasies of each application. It's true you have a lot of key commands, but some of them are more intuitive then what people think of as the standard key commands. For example, what's so intuitive about control+v to paste or control+x to cut?

It's also a bit of a misnomer to think of Emacs as just a text editor. For example, it can be used as a file manager, a development environment, a personal organizer and more.

I think that's one of the main problems I had with it. It tries to do far too much, and puts everything into an editor style environment. I found it to be a nightmare, especially the strings of key combinations that can't be translated to some kind of mnemonic in most cases.
