    There could be a setup of Emacs that is as easy as any editor to learn. It
    is the advanced features that will take time to learn.

    I guess that we are really discussing is if there is an advantage of such a

We could make an incompatible "simple" interface for Emacs and make it
easy to learn.  It could look just like gedit, perhaps.

It might be better, overall, if gedit were implemented as such an
interface to Emacs.  I am not sure it would have been less work, though.

However, if you change it that much, it won't give people an easy pathway
to using Emacs.  Its commands would be all different.
