emacs org-mode

I tried org-mode a while ago, loved it, and then inexplicably stopped using it. I think I was trying to figure out how to integrate my entire workflow (calendar, task, notes, etc.) in emacs and it was too much at once. This time I was just using it for notes/outlining and it is quite amazing. The keys are very intuitive also. You use the Meta and Shift keys combined with the arrow keys to move sections up and down, indent, etc.

I also used the table mode to actually make a table I needed and it is, quite simply, incredible. It's amazingly intuitive to fill a table, move rows and columns, insert, and delete. The thing can even be used as a spreadsheet, but I haven't tried that yet.
