That is not always the case.  I tried out vi and emacs when I started
as a Linux newbie and did not like vi.  I could not immediately
understand it's logic.  I could however immediately start
using emacs.  It has an easy and very good tutorial for newbies and
after 5 years I am still learning and enjoying new features.
