Examples?

Emacs is amazing, but as far as productivity goes, at least as a
programmer's editor for popular languages, it is far behind current
contenders.

I was hooked on emacs the first time I saw keyboard macros.

Is there another editor that can spell check code?

I appreciate that it's multi-OS and multi-language.

I use emacs for bulk coding. However, I use a language and OS specific IDE for debugging.
