I've been using Emacs for 15 years, it's my default editor for basically everything. What I love most about it is that it recognizes a truckload of file types (programming languages, LaTeX files, HTML files,...) and adapts its behaviour accordingly: syntax highlighting, menus, compiling, etc. Don't know much about vi, I've never bothered to learn it.
vi is very simple, and lightning quick. Great for rescue and broken systems. Not all that hard to learn. Plus it is common to ALL "nixes.
