This Linux-related article is a stub. You can help LXFWiki by expanding it (http://www.linuxformat.co.uk/wiki/index.php?title=Emacs&action=edit).

emacs is a very powerful text editor (though some may claim it is a complete OS).

It was originally written by Richard Stallman at the MIT Artificial Intelligence facility.

Emacs has a complete wiki site of its own [1] (http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl)

Because of its size, Emacs is often jocularly expanded to Eight Megabytes And Constantly Swapping.
