As is the case with vi(m), emacs revolves around the concept that
removing your hands from the home row on the keyboard is bad for
productivity (touch-typists can do things much faster with a keyboard
than with a mouse) and also hampers your ability to edit code remotely
in several situations (like debugging code on a headless web server or
recovering your screwed X session). If you need an editor that favors
mice and GUIs, try Padre.
