    I'm 15 and I began to use Emacs and Linux recently.
    Nobody around me are using either of them. I got to know something
about Linux, GNU, Emacs, then I was deeply attracted by them, for a
reason which I myself don't know exactly. I try to use them as often
as possible, even though I can't completely understand them. I
sometimes felt tired and difficult while using them, but I just
believe they are THE BEST, for an unknown reason. (I say that is
unknown, because I am not able to tell my classmates what its
advantage is. Also that is because I am not familiar with Emacs.)
    But I don't know whether it is good for me to use Emacs too early.
(I mean whether it is too difficult for me, a young boy, to use
    I hope I could get some help about it.

(As I am still LEARNING ENGLISH, I hope to be forgiven for the
mistakes above, but please tell me to help me. And thanks to the Spell
Checking of Emacs.)
