Thanks, nice to be here! ;-)

Oh yes, I tried it, and it looks rather cool. The problem is, however, that I 
work quite often from a remote machine, via ssh, and without X. So I believe 
that in my case it is a good idea to develop habits for using Emacs without 
the gui, from ground up.

If I got to the point of making some effort to learn and use a powerful text 
editor, I might as well learn it in a way that is platform/gui/os-independent. 
It should be a good investment of time.

Besides, TeX buffer previews notwithstanding, Emacs' gui is just soooo ugly... 
Just my personal taste here. ;-)

Anyway, thanks for the info! :-)
