The right takeaway for a new user is that learning Emacs is
learning something new and different - it is not your momma's
editor. And it rightfully has its own terminology, which you
had better learn also.
The Greek philosopher Proclus records that when Ptolemy asked
if there wasn't perhaps an easier way to learn Emacs than Emacs,
Euclid replied, "Sire, there is no royal road to Emacs."
