I had four main uses for emacs:

- Programming in SuperCollider
- Email (wanderlust)
- Editing of Lilypond source files for music notation
- Org

Lilypond was the first to go. Lilypond-mode is basically unmaintained, and its 
code completion is rather poor compared to the dedicated, qt-based editor 

Then SuperCollider 3.6 came out, with a new, dedicated qt-based editor, again 
improving on the code completion available in sclang-mode.

Then I got a tablet and started doing email on it, and lost interest in 

So now I'm down to using emacs just for org-mode and... that's [expletive] 
spectacular all by itself :)  In the last year, using beamer export for my 
presentations opened my eyes to org-mode as a writing tool. My next paper will 
be written entirely in org-mode, looking forward to that!
