Another important thing to note about org-mode is its flexibility to do
things. I just started using it one month ago and I can already see
what it could do.

For example, in my to-do list, I’ve got several projects that aren’t
related and I would like to keep them private. I also got several task
categories like documentation, implementation, testing, etc. Using
Org-mode, I can select a project and configure org-mode in a way that
it would generate a time report and a summary of my work. That report
could then be exported in a convenient file format and be given to my

However, I can’t agree more with RMS that this mode is monolithic.
That’s a major problem. However, if we take CEDET as an example,
Org-mode components can’t work on their own given the complexity of
their relations. Could CEDET be refactored in ways that we could enjoy
many of its functions? Maybe, but that should be done on a case-by-case
