The defaults of emacs are really, really bad. And making the whole thing like what you get with DOOM Emacs is going to cost you lots of hours reading documentation and experimenting with your configuration.

That's just wrong. If you want Doom Emacs, you just have to type two commands:

git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/hlissner/doom-emacs ~/.emacs.d

~/.emacs.d/bin/doom install

The first commands takes two seconds to complete, the second one about five minutes (it downloads and compiles about 200 MB of code, fonts, icons, ...). Then you start Emacs, and you're done. That's clearly not "lots of hours".

I think it refers to convert vanilla emacs in a "doomed like" experience.

I don't understand.  The two commands above do exactly that.

Or does "convert vanilla emacs in a "doomed like" experience" means "without using Doom Emacs, by doing everything by oneself"? In that case it's not wrong, it is ridiculous. Almost as ridiculous as if he had written "it would have taken me more time to develop Emacs by myself than to develop Visual Studio by myself".

BTW, I find that many of the defaults of Visual Studio are really bad, and I'm pretty sure that making the whole thing like what you get with vanilla Emacs would cost me lots of hours. Can I conclude something from this? Clearly not.
