I think that Emacs is a fantastic editor for programming.
The problem is that it is impossible to use due to either it's lack of or
ridicilous short cuts. I do not want to be rude, but the fact is that it has
ruined my right arm. This is because I have to use the mouse for all the
simple things I have to do frequently, like browsing/moving between files in
the buffer. Instead of using just ctrl tab, F8, or alt + nr, which works so
good in other editors, I either have use the f***** mouse or use the following,
ridicilous combinations of short cuts: "ctrl x ctrl b" + "move up/down with ->"
+ "ctrl x o" + " ctrl x 1". I think it's insane.
Also why should it be so impossible to use <tab> to highlight the option in
the bar: why not "tab b" instead of clicking on "Buffers" or "Files" with the
disgusting mouse which lefts my arm acheing????
'Til then I will have to use KWrite, but I want to be able to use Emacs
without going insane and ruin my right arm.
This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.
In GNU Emacs 20.7.1 (i386-redhat-linux-gnu, X toolkit)

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:
- short cuts,
