If you use Macintosh, and you are a fax on Emacs, then check out the binaries for Aquamacs. It is Emacs with a whole lot of Macintosh GUI thrown in. To quote its website:

"Aquamacs is an Aqua-native build of the powerful Emacs text editor. By "Aqua-native," we mean more than just the fact that this version of Emacs runs as a standard OS X application. Aquamacs features extensive customization: it will feel and behave mostly like an Aqua program - while still being a real GNU Emacs with all the ergonomy and extensibility you've come to expect from this world-class editor."

Or one could just build Emacs with --enable-carbon-app!

I've been using Emacs pre-22 on Mac OS X for a long for a long time now, and compiled Emacs 22.1 yesterday. It behaves great, and looks great too!
