Emacs: 1 Key for M-x

The default key for execute-extended-command is Alt+x.

This command is most frequently used. You should set a single key for it. Single key is easier to type than Alt+x.

You can set F8 or ▤ Menu key to do execute-extended-command.

On Linux, ▤ Menu key does execute-extended-command by default.
