Review after a few months with Emacs
Good: package management is very good for Emacs if you want to compare to Vim
Good: document are excellent if you compare to Vim
You can search all the functions with C-h?
Good: Support almost all languages such as Latex and Agda etc
Bad: You need to hold so many keys in order to do thing useful.
Bad: Shortcut keys are hard to remember, it is long and complicated.
Bad: The shortcut keys are not that short at all,
copy and past: C-X Space (move your cursor) M-w
Bad: It is hard for beginner since it is hard to config if you don't know Lisp
Bad: The GUI version is not very polished such as SpaceEmacs

Do I suggest anyone to try it out?
Yes, Emacs is the monster editor, it is more than just a Vim.
But Vim is still my favour editor so far. It might be changed in the future.

There are many good thing about Vim:
1. You do not need to hold the CTRL key when you are moving the cursor around.
2. The shortcut key is real short
3. It is easy to start for beginner.
4. Much easy to config it.
5. GUI Vim are good for Window Gvim and MacVim

Emacs Evil Mode for Vim Users
The main reason that I did not use Emacs is the Default Key Bindings are hard to press.
For Example, you need to hold the CTRL key all the time when you are
moving around such as Up, Down, Left, Right. On the other hand, Vim can be switched to
'Insert Mode' and you just press k => Up, j => Down, h => Right, l => Left.
But we all know Emacs can do almost anything, it means Emacs can emulate Vim[sorts of]
Yep, There is evil-mode that you can install as package to emulate Vim.

Here are the steps to install SpaceEmacs on MacOS and config evil-mode
1. Your Emacs most likely is out of date on your MacOS.
SpaceEmacs needs at least 2.4 version. I only have 2.2 Emacs on
my MacOS High Sierra when I'm writing.
You can check your Emacs version with 'emacs --version' on command line

2. Update Your Emacs to 2.4 with homebrew as following

3. Check your Emacs version with 'emacs --version' again after you finish step 2.
Make sure it is 2.4 or up.
Here is mine: GNU Emacs 24.5.1

3. Install packages for evil-mode, put the following code to your .emacs file
(require 'package)
(package-initialize)

4. Star up your Emacs to install evil-mode package
M-x package-refresh-contents ENTER
M-x package-install ENTER evil

(require 'evil)
(evil-mode 1)

6. Start your Emacs now and  you should be in evil-mode
Switch back to Normal Emacs Mode with C-z, C-z back to evil-mod


Emacs Meta Key on MacBookPro Setting
Why most people DO NOT use Emacs?
It is painful to use the OLD IDE, yep, it is really OLD IDE.
I use MacBook, first you need to manually map the Meta Key to Option(ALT) on Mac keyboard.
so you can get somethign call M-x
Well, after you map the Meta key to Opiton, then you will encounter anyone stupid problem:
It is impossible to press Option and other key at the same time with one hand.
Yep, you can use left hand to press the Option key but it is not convenient.

Try to figure out how to lighlight the text and copy/paste almost impossible.
1. Press C-x Space C-x Space  => highlight the text, Yep, You need to press SIX keys to
select the text, I'm sure there is better way to do it for some Emacs Haskers

2. I'm still have no idea what is "Rectangle Mark disable and enable"
