Do we need to learn/use Emacs?
Two points: (1) Emacs is a good and very useful tool for computer scientists to know, even if it is not your main editing tool. You may well be in environments in the future (e.g., a job) where using Emacs is necessary. So it's definitely worth learning, and CS60 is your opportunity to do so. However, it's not our intent to force you to solely, or even primarily, use Emacs. (2) As has been stated in class (and in the syllabus), you are responsible for everything that is covered in class and in the discussion sessions, and since Emacs is one of those things, it's certainly fair game for the final exam.
(But hopefully #1 is a stronger motivation than #2.)
