The recent messages about vi, vim, emacs, TeXShop, ... show clearly  
that every LaTeX user has a strong opinion concerning what he thinks  
to be the "best" LaTeX editing environment.

It is obviously a matter of taste and a solution which is good for  
one user will not be well suited to another.

However, I think it would be very useful for newbies to know what are  
the competing environments. This way they would be able to test them  
and choose the one he likes best.

So, it would be interesting if the proponents of vi, vim, emacs,  
TeXShop, ... could describe precisely how they configure their editor  
for best usage with LaTeX.

In particular, it would be usefull to gather information on how to  
setup a system of "placeholders" or "bullets" to speed up commands  
and environments insertion for the various editors.

Best regards,
