The new release seems unlikely to tempt many vi users to make a switch
I don't know about that. For my own part, when I started learning about Linux and Unix, I learned Emacs. At one point, I switched to vim and I use it heavily now. However, I still long for the integrated environments, especially for development. I remember how Emacs had a deeper understanding of my source code, and it made writing code less tedious. I have tried Eclipse and NetBeans, but I don't like their heavy graphical nature.
Maybe it's time I take a look at Emacs again.
