It is very different in one way. An editor is a tool you start

difference might seem small, but since it raises complexity for
beginners it waists time for them.

Kill/yank comes to mind as obvious example. The copy/cut/paste
terminology is pretty much standard, so the various kill/yank
operations (kill-region, copy-region-as-kill, etc.) should
be mapped to these terms.

FWIW, I miss those things outside emacs, it's why I am using firemacs on firefox…
