Emacs really is the greatest editor! Once you get to know it that is … and although you can successfully use Emacs and other editors, the notion of learning one editor well is soon to dawn on any professional programmer after a while.
This page is an attempt to create a minimal configuration that leverages the awesome powers of Emacs while incorporating useful features from other popular editors and integrated development environments, IDEs. Inspiration from http://xahlee.org/emacs/modernization.html
With the release of Emacs-23 the number of tweaks necessary have been greatly reduced, but there are still some nags and that might be very annoying for an average user or enterprise newbies.
More to come!
