I've grown accustomed to using Emacs with Vim key bindings. Not sure where that puts me.

Is it bad if I use nano? I was taught to use pico.

By the way, how can I learn vim? I have seen other people use it and it is awesome, but I am not particularly proficient with it.

Run the `vimtutor`, there's a vim cheat sheet on the Gentoo docs site, and vim.org is a valuable resource for tinkering.

Well vim has a better economy of motion but I can code anything up very quickly in Emacs lisp so the environment is valuable.

woooo \o/. this is my absolute favorite "non-IDE" editor for windoz. i have yet to find anything even close on linux. bluefish is the "closest" but bluefish has some peculiar idiosyncrasies that i just can't get into, such as control-< and control-> for multi-line indent. whats wrong with just tab and alt-tab like single line indenting? huh? and if i have something highlighed and hit control-f or control-h auto-fill the damn search box. maybe i'll scratch my own iche and contribute some patches.... but i keep effing up the indents and i just close the damn editor in frustration. :lol:

Netbeans is written in Java so naturally it's slow and buggy as hell, but it's still the best IDE I've used. I just wish it had better C++ support. It's like it only supports the parts of C++ with direct analogues in Java; no support for C++1x or even moderately complex template code.

After coming to the conclusion that vim is silly I recenty switched to emacs.
The default keybindings don't seem as intuitive though.
By the way, did you emacs users change many keybindings or do you stick to the defaults?
