mrc - Yup, I know it's such a beast. A friend of mine has just bought a 2nd hand A7000 to try to port some stuff over, and Emacs was his first suggestion - I persuaded him that it was probably too big a job to do it on an OS you've never even used, yet alone program in...

In fact, what I'd really like to have is:

1) A text editor that /doesn't/ open up multiple windows for each file you're editing

2) A virtual desktop that doesn't rely on mouse presses to switch between them

3) A windowing environment that has input focus follows mouse

Now, I've seen 3) on RISC OS a while back (but was buggy at the time), and 2) I'd imagine exists. The nearest to 1) is probably TWIN.

If anyone's got any suggestions (preferably stuff that people actually use, rather than 'I saw this once, but didn't like it'), then I'm all ears...
