Thats not exactly true...
Tom's Unix On a Floppy (or "More Magic" as a co-worker calls it)
does NOT offer emacs. It offers a stripped down emacs look-alike
clone... NOT emacs!
This clone emacs look-alike is NOT a lisp interpreter (which is what
emacs really is) it is just basically a text editor that works and looks
of course on the disk this editor is named emacs just so its easy to find
the text editor.

A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and
making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually
die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.
