If what you don't like are the keychords in emacs, then
instead of typing C-M-\ you can type equivalently and sequentially:  ESC C-\

Otherwise, you can make your own key-binding to your liking in emacs.
That shouldn't be a reason why not to use it.  

There even are modes to use CUA or vi keyboard shortcuts...
