Point taken.  I guess I should have said "FSF Emacs"?

One problem with the Mac OS X version of Emacs is being able to distinguish the windowing system/gui used: None (curses), X11, or Carbon. On my machine I have each version running; and on windows I have an NT/Win32 and a cygwin (X11) version as well. Should the installer make explicit which GUI version it is installing?

As for personal preference, I would do the following:

%PROGRAM_FILES%\GNU Emacs\bin\emacs.exe
or possibly this, although less desirable since there aren't any

%PROGRAM_FILES%\GNU Emacs\21.3\bin\emacs.exe

What is the difference between Emacs and XEmacs (formerly "Lucid Emacs")? ======================================================================= ==

First of all, they're both GNU Emacs. XEmacs is just as much a later version of GNU Emacs as the FSF-distributed version. This FAQ refers to
    the latest version to be distributed by the FSF as "Emacs," partly
    because the XEmacs maintainers now refer to their product using the
    "XEmacs" name, and partly because there isn't any accurate way to
differentiate between the two without getting mired in paragraphs of
    legalese and history.

Please just use "Emacs" as a name.  Anything else would be misleading
in that context.
