Emacs as a daemon whut!?

Oh my gosh, that is brilliant. I am going to start doing that right now! Thank you so much for the tip!

Emacs daemon, yes but ...

Just one thing. I like running emacs as a daemon, but it may not always be convenient, since emacs is not multi-threaded. Therefore, you will have several frames using the same emacs process, and this is not what you want if one of you emacs applications (org-mode, gnus, etc.) are going to do CPU intensive stuff!
