    In windows, vim has working cmd ootb but emacs doesn't and don't tell me to use shell, eshell, or even powershell inside emacs because it's shit, slow, and make applications don't work as intended
    I agree if it's in linux tho

        I mean for cmd/terminal replacement, the shell it self is not the problem since I never actually using it other than for piping commands inside emacs so I can't really judge it

    TL;DR bloat

      This is all true. The problem with this argument is it’s old bloat meaning it’s immaculately efficient compared to all modern programs. There is no noticeable performance loss for using eMacs over vim on modern hardware. The only downside of eMacs’ complexity is… confusion.

      Emacs is literally an interpreter. Believe it or not most of the stuuf you listed are just elisp files. Which you can delete

    I don't think I have the patience to learn another set of keybindings and figure out what addons and settings will make emacs actually useable. Vim seems simple and intuitive in comparison.

    I loved emacs until treesitter started bugging out every 30 minutes, and I had to M-x tree-sitter-mode and then M-x tree-sitter-hl-mode, to restart it. And I also realized that emacs just has way too many keybindings that I don't use.
    Now I use tmux + neovim, configured from scratch, and I'm not going back.
    I still use emacs for elfeed and org-mode, though.

      what's wrong with having keybinds available that you don't (yet) use (and that you could rebind if you wanted)?

    Give me an actual reason I should bother learning vim or emacs when nano simply gets the job done in a piss easy way.

      Why would you, indeed. emacs is for grown up, virile, masculine alpha chads.

    Switched from neovim to evil mode emacs. The best Vim GUI is emacs. My .emacs is ~50 lines, and it just werks.
    I think people bounce off emacs because they get memed into thinking they need to configure everything immediately, that's what happened to me when I tried it a couple years ago.
