Thanks for the response. One reason is that I would like to learn
Aquaemacs 'cause

1. I can use it when I code with perl, python etc.
2. I can use it (emacs) also in windows when I have to work with Windows
3. Everyone is talking about how good emacs is; it would be nice to
see if that is true :-)
