Re: virtual space?

        You know it's interesting; virtual space as I think I understand it
would probably break a lot of macros people like me have collected. 
(Granted it could be thrown in its own mode -- thus reducing the
likelihood of breakage).  So I suppose this "problem" could be construed
as a feature.

        But even so, just to run a quick check I opened up vi.  Vi did not use
virtual space.  Neither does my word processor.  So I'm trying to figure
out how it could possibly be so ubiquitous.

        I suppose if you really wanted to you could hire a poor unemployed
programmer to create these things for you, and then share it with the
community.  If you really want it that bad.

        But perhaps this just shows that not all tools are useful for
everyone.  Some people love vi, and hate emacs.  (Although they will
forever burn in hell for straying from the path of the One True
Editor).  That's fine.  It's preference.

        Use the editor that suits you.  If you want an IDE with a nice GUI,
emacs may not be for you.  If you enjoy all the features many of us do,
and don't really care about GUIs, Emacs may be for you.
