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

    "I use uemacs myself, and I consider it the best editor around. Not for

    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."
