Well, I find Emacs 21.1[*] does me very well.  I run it on a Linux tty
(41 lines by 134 columns) with no mouse, no menu, no scroll bar, no need
to faff around with Xresources to get a readable font, no jpegs, .no gifs
:-), no distractions at all, but with coloured text.

All I did was to get the source code, build it by accepting all the
default options and it was fine.  OK, my cursor blinks, but that's
Linux's thing, not Emacs's.

Like somebody else said, get the source and build your own version.  When
_that_ isn't exactly what you want, play around until it is.

[*] 21.3 is now available.
