Sure thing. I use Emacs for writing texinfo documents (I try to
maintain a manual of simplistic installation instructions for gNS on
Lemote YeeLoong), general notetaking and also modifying code (I don't
write that much code myself, but I tend to modify stuff to make it
work a way I prefer). I have also used Emacs as an IRC client with erc
(Mx erc) and as a Gmail client with Wanderlust (I think it was
called). Just for fun I also used it as a default shell (some
instructions on EmacsWiki) for a day or two but that isn't a good idea
for long-term use.

There are a mode that's called Org-mode that supposed to be awesome
but I haven't really grasped that one yet. Just check out the
different addons on the EmacsWiki. There is something for everything

"Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build

 your mind, be formless, shapeless - like Emacs.
 If you put Emacs in a cup it becomes the cup, if

 put Emacs into a teapot it becomes the teapot.
 Now, Emacs can flow or it can crash. Be Emacs, my friend"
