Am I a bad person for wanting Word bindings for Emacs? Things like ctrl-left-arrow being previous word not previous window? Or perhaps ctrl-shift-left-arrow as select word left?


Well, I keep wishing for Emacs bindings for Word. :-)
Maybe emacs needs a mode for editing all of the files that OpenOffice Writer can edit.
emacs isn't the end-all and be-all of text editors. "yet."

modifier-motion being "add the next in that direction to the selection" is a clever idea, and emacs should incorporate that. (And it would be simple to make emacs do it).

Although I should point out that alt-left-arrow _is_ previous window; this is the standard microsoft misuse of the control key.
