Indeed. Therefore the tutorial for new users should emphasize features
which are  better in emacs compared to other tools.

In current state of things I convinced that tutorial must describe these n,p,f,b bindings. Arrow keys cannot replace them completely right now, because there are many keymaps that use npfb, but not arrow keys. For instance grep-mode has special meaning for np. Tutorial is the right place to describe these conventions. Again, problem is not in tutorial which describes bindings, but in non-ergonomic layout of bindings.
