Hm. Dunno why that should make one sad. I would never use vi or vim (unless I
had to), but I don't see why I should be sad or bothered if other people find it
useful. One person likes to live in the forest; another prefers the city; a
third the shore.

Why the need to make Emacs the most popular? It's good to make Emacs better, but
what's the popularity contest about? Perhaps Americans on average listen to
Britney Spears more than Mozart or Muddy Waters. So what?

On the other hand, info about the relative use of different Emacs versions is
(mildly) interesting and might be helpful in some ways.
