GNU, GPL, Open Source Richard Stallman, industry activist and founder of the Free Software Foundation has - once again - relinquished his role as maintainer of the phenomenally successful GNU Extensible, Customizable, Display Editor (Emacs). The news was slipped out on the Emacs developers' forum and Stallman explained his reasons in a later interview.

Did anyone notice RMS saying that he envisions Emacs adding word processing capabilities?

I guess it's the next step for the Lisp processor that just so happens to have a text editor, psychotherapist, terminal emulator, email client . . . why not add in a word processor too . . .
