Vim mode in Emacs (no editor war)

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I made the Vim-to-Emacs switch in the last year. I started out by trying one of the Vi-like modes (can't remember which...Viper I think) but I eventually just scrapped that and dove in head first. The thing is that a) Emacs has a few metric shit-tons of features that you can learn and b) it nearly maxes out the possible keybindings. I found that the Vi mode, while it helped me in text editing, prevented me from really learning the rest of the system. Once I got rid of that crutch, I found that learning Emacs went much more smoothly.Really, Vim and Emacs are fairly equivalent in their basi (HowTos)
