   The keys are completely non-intuitive. I have read the help; two hours
   later, I cannot remember how to use info. It takes significant effort
   to learn anything which is non-intuitive. emacs is similarly
   counter-intuitive, which is why I use nvi.

Now you are moving into the realm of arbitrary personal opinions.  I
find the Info keys perfectly intuitive.
