What are you talking about?  By your logic we should all stop using
computers and go back to typewriters or pen and paper.

Most Emacs power users cringe at the thought of using the arrow keys
instead of C-f and its siblings.  I too was skeptical before I sat
down and forced myself to learn it, but in the end it is worth it.
Learning it is not really difficult or time-consuming either.
