Why would I be talking about Intellisense from MS? What sense would that
make when discussing semantic in an emacs NG?

Are really do not know why you appear to be so determined to make this
difficult. Do you really think I mean anything other than the
Intellisense which is part of the semantic package? And is called
"Intellisense" by cedet package itself? Here:

Basically all you have said is "look at this gif which is made by a
mash of packages only I know about". How that is supposed to help in any
way understand semantic is beyond me. It does look impressive though and
my basic frustration is simply being unable to get it (semantic) to work
anything like you have demonstrated :-(
