You could have said that ten years ago. Since a few years, Emacs has a
traditional GUI interface. You don't have to learn all the magic keystrokes,
you bring the cursor on the menu, click, get the next item, and so on. And
octave-mode in Emacs is invaluable to colorize and tabiffy the right way
your code. When I hit enter and see a badly indented line, I know something
weird happened, badly closed parenthesis,, unclosed if - endif blocks, and
the like. To me, Emacs learning curve is not that high, and the added-value
much worth the time you'll spend learning it.
