Emacs Quotes

"Emacs outshines all other editing software in approximately the same way that the noonday sun does the stars. It is not just bigger and brighter; it simply makes everything else vanish." - Neal Stephenson

"I'm writing this article with software called XEmacs. The program is unlike any other word processor I've ever encountered. In addition to cutting and pasting text, XEmacs can run other programs; send electronic mail; browse the World Wide Web; retrieve, edit, and send files across the Internet; and keep track of appointments. It's like a digital Swiss army knife." - Charles C. Mann in Atlantic Monthly (Of course Emacs is not a word processor, but we'll let that slide I guess.)

'Course there's an emacs command to do that.

"Gnus is one component of the Emacs operating system." - Leo

The first five years of emacs are the worst; after that, it's just difficult - Bill Venables

Almost all of the really smart people I know use Emacs - Paul Johnson
