I don't think I've ever had to chord metakeys in Emacs.

I learned vi first but never really got on with it. I'd heard about
this thing called Emacs, spent an hour working through the tutorial,
and was hooked.

I can still use vi if emacs isn't installed, of course. Mind you, if
your predecessor had the same rather bizarre tastes as mine, you'll
find that vi was removed and pico put in its place. Now *that* is a
sucky editor.
