Me too. But, the students I force to use emacs for simulation
( don't like it.

I would very much like a different situation than I am in now. The
students very much would like another, more "normal" editor. So
probably I ought to work in emacs to develop an editor looking and
feeling more as anything else and distribute the program with that,
instead of the ideal situation:

Have them work in emacs too and over time learn all the great
features, but start out on something appealing to people coming from
MS word.
