There are lots of XEmacs users of ESS, but I'm guessing they are mostly
on UNIX; particularly Solaris which has pretty nicely packaged it with
their Studio compiler collection (except that it includes an ancient
version of ESS). Beyond that, there are quite a few Windows users which
I don't really get because XEmacs has never strongly supported Windows;
you never see it on OS X since there is very little Aqua support; and
I've never seen much attention given to it on the Linux platform, but
I'm not really in a position to know much about that.
