I don't think the OP was intending on using vim (although nothing wrong
with that in any case ;-)).  The proposal was to use evil-mode in
Emacs.  There are many reasons for doing so, given that one wishes to
continue using emacs.  Two that apply for me are avoiding RSI issues (no
keyboard chords) and I prefer modal editing (benefits in movement and
word/sentence operations).

I did start with vi (Unix v7 on PDP 11/45) but switched to emacs a few
years later (in 1984/5, BSD Unix on a Vax 11/780), using emacs almost
exclusively since then.  Evil has been a godsend for me.

YMMV of course!
