How about motor? (apt-cache show motor).

I still prefer myself to use Emacs. With stuff like ede to automatise
the building of Makefiles, it's a full-fledged IDE, but that initial
learning curve still scares people, no matter how much you tell them
that it will be worth it in their end. If learning to properly
touch-type is part of it, so be it.

Btw, I personally think that editting in Emacs is only comfortable if
you use a US keyboard layout, since otherwise a lot of the commands
move to uncomfortable places.
