Word Processors on Linux

   From: Jerry Feldman <gaf at>

   As I was taught, EMACS is God's editor and more. 

Emacs is not an editor.  Emacs is a way of thinking about the world,
and as such is a way of thinking about editors.  The process of
editing is Emacs, but Emacs is more than the process of editing.  When
you ask what Emacs does, you are asking a question with no answer,
because Emacs doesn't do, it is done to.  Emacs just is.  ...  I hope
this makes things clearer.
