vi is worse ;-)

i know emacs is a powerful editor, but my brain don't like to learn 
various styles of usages and switching behaviour when using different 
editors. ask someone without unix experience to start emacs or vi, edit 
a text and save it. if he will not stuck completly (on vi), he most 
likely needs more time than using pico (nano) or mc's editor. the GUI 
emacs is much better, but i don't like this mixed text-mode / GUI 
interface and there still different key bindings than in 
notepad/gedit/whatever... i know you can customize everything, but i try 
to avoid customizing too much (takes time, only helps on you personal 
machine / user account)

the good news for me regarding supercollider: there is a tcl/tk frontend 
for supercollider called scfront. very simple, but runs out of the box. 
it's linked on supercollider swiki.
