Which is a question I have recently been considering.
I have used XEmacs for a few years. My usage is for R with ESS, TeX with
AUCTeX, sweave, .Rd files for my R package, a bit of mySQL and html.
Does either XEmacs or GNU Emacs have an edge these days? I have got the
impression the Emacs has advanced more than XEmacs recently.
