[ubuntu] Is xemacs better than gedit?

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am using ubuntu10.04LTS and have used gedit so far. I hear that xemacs is another powerful editor. Can anybody please point out if xemacs21 is better than gedit. I intend to use it mainly for writing text files, latex input files, and for writing c/c++ programs. Any other relevant points may also be suggested. Thanks. (Hardware)
