Hearing this from a couple of Emacs users is most entertaining :-)


PS: JC, don't complain about mnemonics for function keys
    1) The keys are the same than in norton commander, which many mc users
       are used to
    2) mc does display at the bottom of the screen what each of them does,
       so it's like Emacs where you have to have remember that to do foo,
       you have to hit ALT+X+ALT+foo+bar (granted, vim ain't much better)
Microsoft is to operating systems & security ....
                                      .... what McDonalds is to gourmet cooking
