And this is one of the best reasons to learn either Vim or Emacs (or
both, eventually): one should not be tied to any particular OS for
access to one's development tools.

Vim and Emacs are both general-purpose, highly-extensible and -extended,
powerful editing tools. But more important than those is that they are
both free software and (partly as a result of that freedom)
well-supported by a mature community of developers.

Core programming tools, like your text editor or your team's VCS, take
significant investment. Don't needlessly squander that investment on a
tool limited to a single language, a single vendor, or a single
operating system.
