I guess it depends on your way of working. Although I am not so
a fan of the ESC to change modes in vi and have trouble remembering all
those keycodes for commands, I found that learning vi was easier than
Emacs. For me, the important thing is that both Emacs and vi are
installed on almost all Unix and FreeBSD platforms, and once you know
one of them, you're much more powerful.

Personally, I use both depending on my needs. I suggest you use both of
them more than once before you make up your mind about their usefulness.
