Yes, this is subjective, but while I use the mouse in other apps,
every time I try to use the mouse in Emacs, I can't make any sense of
default mouse bindings mess, so have to resort to the keyboard (where
Emacs keybindings are far superior to other apps).


I wonder how much of the "we only use keyboard" echos comes from the mouse bindings not being useful.

Like, if you want the context menu, you have to press Ctrl on the keyboard anyway. Might as well invoke the command from the keyboard entirely.
