I used to use Emacs.  Liked it too.  Then I got away and started using 
vim.  Note that vim and vi are not the same programs, but vim can 
emulate vi by restricting itself to a subset of it's full command set.

I've found that the features of vim and emacs are quite comparable. 
Today, the difference is basically what keystrokes you get used to for a 
particular function.
