The above chart shows that searches for the term “emacs” have been
declining over the past 3 years.  I suspect part of this is due to the
growth of IDEs like Eclipse.

This isn't proof that use of Emacs is declining, of course.  But it does
indicate that people might not be as interested to learn about it as
they were in the past.

(If you add “vim” to the chart, you can see that queries for it have
stayed more constant. The term “vi” does not have as clear a meaning —
most of the hits are for the sixth version of something.)
