Too hard?

My Emacs looks like it's from 1987, because I want it to, but I can also
make it look like whatever I want.  Stable?  Featureful?  Are we using
the same piece of software?  Emacs is commonly held up as an example of
too many features.

If what it looks like is really important to you, then you ARE using the
wrong software; or go get Aquamacs...
