That's a very good point!  At least it worked for me.  I learned a far
greater number of key bindings *after* I started using text frames.  The
lasting effects of using "emacs -nw" were especially manifest after a
couple of years of Gnus usage inside xterm + screen windows.

I don't necessarily recommend "emacs -nw" sessions for _new_ users, but
it really did help me learn many of the standard key bindings during my
own intermediate period between "newbie Emacs user" and "using Emacs to
do almost everything, including IRC, email, programming and what not".
