Ah, well, if we're doing prehistory, then I was using TV -- a
screen-oriented version of TECO -- in the mid '70s.  I cannot see any
resemblance between it & Emacs, however.  My understanding of the
relation between TECO & Emacs is that Stallman wrote the first Emacs
*in* TECO, there being no Elisp.
