    No, sorry, wrong, for at least a couple of reasons reasons:

    1) XEmacs, being constrained to be under the same license (GPL) as
    its progenitor, GNU Emacs, could never have been closed-source.

    2) Lucid Emacs, the version of Emacs that becamse XEmacs, was not
    started until ca. 1992

    I refer you to for
    documentation---JWZ was Mr. Lucid Emacs for quite a time.

    In 1987, there are any number of things that it could have been---I'd
    guess either Unipress Emacs or perhaps Gosling Emacs.
