Emacs excels at things like bidirectional communications with co-operating
processes, which is good for embedding things in (or marrying things to)
the editor, like a shell, a REPL or a debugger. You need any of that,

Vim has a better text editing interface - period. As for Vi - we all know
it sucks - but this never was about Vi.
