To quote the Emacs Manual: "Emacs is the extensible, customizable, self-documenting real-time display editor." Emacs, being one of the flagships of the Free Software Foundation is used and developed by countless people for many years. It is available for a big number of OS and due to its extensibility it is like a swiss army knife for all editing tasks.
