Emacs versions

"GNU Emacs began life in the 1970s and is currently at version 25, which means it averages two releases to Vim's one, but still definitely on the slow side."

Actually, GNU Emacs is technically still at version 1 -- the 25 is the minor version number. It is said that RMS will release version 2 when the first stable version of GNU Hurd comes out.
