I general I don't think Emacs is difficult to
configure. Actually I think the opposite: if there were
any software that could be that much configured (and
extended), that easy and fast, I would be using it!

About the keyboard-only thing: there you really came to
the right place. I haven't used a mouse for years, and
that has to a great extent been made possible by Emacs.
But yes, I had to put hours into getting better keys -
closer (less hand movement), shorter (not so many keys
pressed), and so on.

But your posts, I don't really understand your problem.
If you state the specific problem I'm sure people would
be happy to help you.
