@email@example.com I felt the same way about Emacs. I was an avid vim user. One day I read a persuasive blog post on Magit and how great it was for some tedious git procedures (specifically partial staging). Magit was my gateway drug, and then OrgMode, and then a bunch of little things here and there resulted in me discarding years of vim experience to get comfortable in Emacs. Haven't looked back since. I also use vanilla Emacs with my own customizations.
