My perspective is different, too. I've never really used Vim, so
differences between Vim and Emacs don't really cause any headaches for
me. Evil works smoothly for what I do. I might be tempted to try Vim,
but I like Org-mode and ESS (with R) too much. I came to modal
operation by way of using vimperator then pentadactyl in Firefox.
