I agree, however I've found that for a lot of things where I went
"against the grain" I later found a much easier way to do things.
Editing remote files, for example, is much easier using tramp than
relying on the remote system's version of Emacs (my university has not
updated Emacs since 2000).

I also thought Xterm was crap until I gave it a real shot, and now I use
it all the time.
