I find it more useful than Common Lisp REPL.

If you start observing features, it will allow switching working buffers and
thus context of evaluation. That is like multiple REPLs in same
session. Then you have nice menues and plethora of options not
available in other LISP implementations' REPL-es.

Most of time I use M-: to evaluate quickly, thus all of the Emacs is
one big REPL.

Common Lisp is a pleasure to program. But I have changed almost all
programs from Common Lisp to Emacs Lisp without regret as I got the
user interfaces both in console and GUI. For now I use Common Lisp on
remote servers handling dynamic communication with clients and sending
me encrypted emails. I have a plan to switch that as well to Emacs

My areas of programming are exclusively communications such as emails,
SMS, phone calls, faxes, letters, mostly related to marketing and
relationships with people and the Dynamic Knowledge Repository.

In other subjects, maybe some heavy calculations, collection of data
from networks, heavy data processing, networking, I could use Common
