        Yeah, it's like making malware for HURD or something. Who reads email in emacs? Why would you submit yourself to such torture when Alpine is available?

          email is the one thing I've not setup, but for all most other text and code editing, emacs is king -- especially Magit, it's in a class of its own.

            I wonder if they ever make Emacs work with ASLR

              I was about to grumble "how is that no major new features, what about the line-numbers", but now I am confused. I am using ≈1.5 month old emacs from git, and its version claims 26.0, and now 25.3 is out… So, is it completely different version, or did they renamed 26.0 → 25.3?

                Completely different. 25.3 is from an older branch.

                  Finally. I have so many friends that could write Lips using Emacs anymore because of this. /s

                    Probably not. Why do you need it?

                    Sounds like you're having a roof on your house, but still want to water-proof your TV against rain.
