The author of this mail is obviously a bad investigator, and
apparently doesn't know what Advanded Groups Search

"I use uemacs myself, and I consider it the best editor around. Not for
any real technical reasons, but simply because I'm used to it. Oh, and
it's not a buggered piece of overgrown sh*t like GNU emacs. There.
I've said it. " (Linus Torvalds, 1 Dec 2000)

"I use "microemacs" (which has got nothing to
do with "real emacs" other than having keybindings that are close enough
to be confusing)." (Linus Torvalds, 23 Apr 1998)

"I'm distrustful of projects that do not have well-defined goals, and
well-defined interfaces. They tend to bloat and do "everything" over
time. This is what gives us horrors like GNU emacs and Mach: they
don't try to do one thing well, they try to do _everything_ based on
some loose principle" (Linus Torvalds, 26 Mar 1998)

"First off, I don't like a lot of the elitism that does on among Linux
hackers.[...] If you think using Un*x makes you some kind of super
genius who should be feared by mere mortals and
end users, either get over it or start using *BSD. *BSD users (and
developers) are all complete jackasses, so you'll fit right in."
(Linus Torvalds, 11 Avr 2001)
