Except EMACS users, of course ... From my fortune file:

''Initially, if I remember correctly, EMACS was Eugene Ciccarelli's init file which made use of MIT TECO's ^R mode ("Realtime") that repainted the screen. RMS started hacking on it around '76 I think and it kind of, um, grew."

Unfortunately, the quote is un-attributed, sorry ...
