For now.  Yeah, sure.

And in five years, when some Emacs newbie asks you about all those
strange terms, you'll say: "Young \(wo\)?man, forget about the newspeak
of opening files in panes, using tabs, cutting and pasting, moving the
cursor and pressing Ctrl+F.  Instead, embrace the ancient wisdom of
visiting files in windows, using buffers, killing and yanking, moving
the point and pressing C-s."

Welcome to the rabbit hole.
