Why I don't prefer using emacs in GUI is that some key-binding that I
have set for the Desktop environment clashes with the key-bindings that
are there for emacs and the consequence - emacs 'hangs' for sometime
before it comes back to normal, and the other reason is that the virtual
terminal is pleasant to my eyes and I can work for longer periods .
