I decided to find out why Emacs is such a big thing with programmers, developers, writers etc. I found out it ships with OSX. Which is nice. Then I tried the tutorial. With all the keyboard combos. Is it correct Emacs has quite the learning curve? I'm not afraid of keyboard-work but I quit the tutorial at 40% or so because boooo-ring.....too much at once perhaps? Any other pointers to "get started with emacs"? I am willing to learn and change my point of view. For now I stick with VSCode.

@frank I'd suggest Mastering Emacs Hard to say if using Emacs would be an improvement for you over VSCode. Personally, it's Org-mode that keeps me coming back.
