an emacs version that can buy liquor
/. has made us the favor to DoS the GNU ftp repository before the mirrors could update themselves.

Meanwhile, if you fellow reader is willing to take up on an exciting open-source project, how about reimplementing Emacs from the ground up in XUL (the Mozilla interface layer that achieved the lovely capability of being as slow as Java) with a Lisp interpreter written in Java ?

Of course, since emacs currently includes a mail reader, a news reader and, maybe (I'm not sure) a simple HTTP browser, this would enable you to run Mozilla, run Emacs, then browse the web from Emacs. Lovely, isn't it ?

Can you see AOL using Mozilla as their default browser (not just Gecko) ? Heh

AOLer: How do I retract the cup holder ?
Support: Click on Tasks, Tools, GNU, Emaczilla.
...(50 seconds, customer has a dual 3 GHz Athlon)...
Support: Type Meta-X , (emacs-system-drive-tray-close '(dev cdrom)), enter.
AOLer: Meta ?
Support: er..., make that Alt.
