Talking about GNU Emacs and XEmacs lately ... I am playing in my mind
with switching from Woody do Gentoo ... but as far as I understood
Gentoo provides only XEmacs ... and since I am used to GNU Emacs ...
well, is it a huge step switching from Xmacs to Xmacs? I fairly seldom
use the mouse so I am used to use the short cuts ... any comments? I
would be glad to listen.
