GNU Emacs Reviews

A new favourite

Positive Review by AlternativeSteve
about GNU Emacs Mar 2016

After two decades of using vi simply because it was there, I decided to take the plunge and try Emacs. I find interface is nicer, and after a few hours of tweaking settings I've found a configuration that looks good and functions well on Windows, Linux, and FreeBSD.

I really like that Emacs comes with a bunch of utilities built in, such as the wonderful Org mode.

On Windows, Emacs has replaced Evernote and OneNote for note taking (with org mode) and Notepad++ and EditPad Pro for text editing.

A simply wonderful old-school productivity tool. Thank-you Richard Stallman and Guy Steele, Jr.
