In a recent discussion -- http://goo.gl/SYoXB -- Walter Bright mentioned
that he still uses a customized version of MicroEmacs. He pointed out
that he doesn't feel the need for Emacs Lisp and such, since he can just
add the feature to the program and rebuild it.
That's our Walter. :)

I've got a license for TextPad, too. I'm pretty sure it's the only
dedicated text editor I've actually found useful enough relative to free
alternatives like Vim to pay money for. (Not counting editors embedded
in IDEs and such.) I only stopped installing it on my systems because
of its lack of updates. I felt the need to break my dependence on it
before I got bit by some bit rot problem.
