Whatever the heck it is , atleast I don't have to worry about command mode and 
insert mode everytime I use emacs as an editor. And emacs indents code 
nicely, better than vi. (maybe there are options in vi to set the style, but 
I find the default indentation awful)

Of course nothing beats vi when one is making small changes to configuration 
files.
