I'm perfectly OK with emacs if I knew anything about it. :) I know it's a little OT to ask, but if anyone knows of a slow, to-the-point tutorial for emacs that will cover getting me cool with the keyboard shortcuts, I'm all ears. org-mode looks awesome, but those keyboard shortcuts are *damn* hard to learn.
Most of basic orgmode is available through the menus (org and tbl are the relevant ones)
The ones that have a keyboard shortcut have that listed in the menu when and if you feel like learning it.
Yes the builtin tutorial is definitely perverse -- recommending Ctrl-P and Ctrl-N over up and down arrows!!
That's much faster for me than leaving touch typing position, but anyway.
I'd actually recommend the built-in tutorial. It sounds pretty much like what Josh was asking for.
Just read the emacs startup screen and start from there.
But you can ignore this nonsense and start there.
After that you can ask on gnu.help.emacs and/or the orgmode list (which is very helpful)
Xah Lee has some nice emacs stuff http://xahlee.org/emacs/emacs.html
[Hes notorious for other reasons -- ignore that]
And of course you can ask me :-)
