You should consider EMACS not as an editor, but rather as a bytecode
interpreter. In a way, this makes it a platform (like Java or the
EMACS is insanely powerful. I spend most of my "productive" time in
EMACS. Some of the things I use it for:
* VM: Arguably one of the best IMAP clients out there. Extensible,
so I have hooks to sa-learn.
* JDEE: I haven't found any alternatives which is not a memory
hog. With tags, style checker, javadoc helpers, what more do you
* Programming: C/C++ with ecb. Built in debugger frontends for
[gj]db. Integrated support for CVS, Subversion and Arch, all of
them within a couple of keystrokes. Assembler mode puts
Metrowerks to shame.
* Emacs Code Browser.
* GNUS: NNTP and as an aggregator.
* Listening to music with EMMS.
* ERC: Better than irssi IMHO.
* Prototyping LISP program in ELISP. I haven't been able to wrap
my head around CL so much, unfortunately. ELISP is a decent
implementation, and if you don't use any of ELISP's specific
features, LISP programs are one of the fastest programs on
earth. CL has bignums and complex data types: very good for
* Frontends for Octave and Maxima [*]. Yup, thats TeX.
* AucTex with preview-latex.
* SPICE mode.
* nxml mode - on the fly xml document validator.
* Preparing neat text documents - usually for minutes and such;
gathers a lot of respect from people who use console email apps.
* w3(m): Popup blocking, tabbed browsing, typeahead search, ...
* Ofcourse, my complete website uses emacs-wiki and a bunch of
custom extensions specifically for my needs (Embedded LaTeX in
webpages comes to mind.)
