Well, I don't think vi is silly.  It is based on a different
philosophy and many people like it.  A discussion about emacs and vi
will always end up in flame wars.  I hope they can be avoided. 
BTW, I personally prefer Emacs but some time ago a famous person in
the TeX world said: "Emacs is a nice operating system, but it lacks a
good editor".

However, if you advertise Emacs, you also should mention auctex and
the wonderful preview-latex package.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
