Thanks Jambunathan, that's really some good advice. You're right, sometimes we just postpone things because we think we should "get ready" for it. Profound and true. 

To make things easier though, I think I'll just go with Emacs + Vipermode :)

If you are comfortable with MacVim go with it. You don't have to compile
your elisp files at all and as a developer I would even venture to say
you shouldn't.

One's development workflow is well one's own and the only way to start
is to start with what one already knows and what one is already
comfortable with. In my experience, trying to be efficient while
starting out will remove the fun out of what you are doing.

If you are serious about your work, choose to work with the info/manuals
ONLY and use Google only as a supplement. Make a note of things as you
USE things so that you don't have to do it twice and keep organizing the
notes as it evolves. Good NOTE TAKING is a practical skill that will
help you in all endeavours.
