In the eyes of most people same applies to Linux ;)
Well, emacs or vi might be slightly more complicated as
other editors, but you earn a lot of flexibility in return.
I don't like vi to much(this comand mode vs edit mode stuff, etc...),
but emacs is great. (By the way xemacs comes with a Menu, which makes it
as easy as any other editor.) It took me two hours to accomodate with
which isn't what I would call hard.
But then you can use it as an IDE for Java/C/C++, Email, Webbrowser

Well, evil toungs say emacs is an OS, not an editor.

Just another point of view
