I am using NTEmacs. One thing emacs programmers must take care of is this
META key. I don't think binding it to Esc as default is a good idea. In my
emacs it is bind to Esc key. I needed to divide emacs window into two and
edit a file according to another. While editing one Meta-C-v shifts the
other window down. Cool. But Using Esc-Ctrl causes two problems:
1- ctrl-esc is the shortcut for the Start button in windows. Lots of time I
2- sometimes I hit ctrl-esc-v and the window I edit on shifts up..
And the worst problem with esc key is: You can't hit it and stay your finger
there. So if you want to move the curser one word forward a couple of times,
you need to do esc-f, esc-f, esc-f....so on. You can't do esc-f-f-f. But you
can do ctrl-f-f-f-f-f...
How you experienced users do it?
Do you bind Meta to another key? Which one? How?
