I believe the truth is more along the lines of duckling imprinting--you know that ducklings imprint on whatever moves first and think that that thing, duck, dog or person, is mommy. We do the same with whatever editor we learned well enough to work with first. For me it was vi. I've learned emacs several times in my life and am able to use it effectively right after relearning it, but the whole time, I yearn for vi. I don't make the mistake of saying vi is better, nor emacs or kate or whatever. If it does the job, and you like it best, then it's the best for you. (Actually vi is better <grin;>).
