Personally I think it should be 'emacs' for developers and everyone
else, with 'vi' for the 'vi weenies'.

Emacs is much much easier to learn, especially for someone who's never
used a keyboard-only text editor before (and of course under X11 it's
got full mouse support too).

Even my SO, who started out being a non-computer person, and who learned
'vi' first, was convinced to give emacs a good go after reading this:
