I'm sure they do, but when I run a command, I don't think in which
module that is, to me it is all Emacs.

Perhaps my statement should be specified into: Emacs AND Linux is
not the same as Emacs AND Windows. It doesn't matter if Emacs is
the same, if it doesn't play the same in a new environment -
perhaps Emacs should *not* be the same to make it work the same?

My .emacs broke on a dozen plus places - and the only thing I ever
installed separately on Debian is some LaTeX stuff (that I

But, even if I were to give you half a point here, there were so
many other details that I noticed. I use Emacs all the time so
there is not a single char on any screen that can change color

problem editing, scrolling (browsing), etc., big files in
Linux. In Windows, it started to lag like crazy.

The whole thing was so frustrating I decided never to do it again,
after putting a considerable effort to make it work (on the same
