Sorry to hear you’re that frustrated with it, but definitely use the software that works best for you. I don’t think it’s helpful to insult the people who contribute to Emacs and Aquamacs about their choices.

In case, it’s helpful, an easier way to copy a line is:

C-a C-k C-y

because C-k kills the line.

If you need to copy a line a lot, and the above is too much to do, it’s possible to define a function and a key binding that does that.
