    i saw this in macaddict, and would like to share this with you guys.

    open terminal, and type emacs. then press esc+x, and type snake. when you are done, type pong. then doctor. then gomoku.....you get hours of UNIX fun! ....the doctor one is REally demented

    Emacs is such a space hog... I bet it'd be tens of megabytes smaller if it didn't have all these kitchen sink Easter eggs in it. :D

    Yes, this is great for wasting time. I generally play around with this when I don't have an internet connection and nothing to do on my computer. IMO emacs has too much irrelevant stuff. Now I only use emacs for the games, and never for the text editor. It's probably the same with many people. How sad.

    It is an extensible programmer's text editor. To me, it's the finest of the free editors and as good as most commercial editors. It has a subset of the A.I. programming language LISP and can do practically anything, including games.

    There is a version called micro emacs which is small enough to fit on a diskette with a lot of space left over.

    Tried what? You found a version of micro emacs for another system that doesn't work? Can't get emacs to work?

    I would suspect that you have not installed the development tools.
