1984–2010
I used EMACS (TECO on Chip&/orDale, DEC TOPS-20 machines) in my first comp sci course at University of Chicago in Winter Quarter 1984. Really. Also used Gosling's EMACS on a Pyramid to pretty much automate my third-shift production expeditor's job away at the UofC computation center from late 1984-86. While smoking baseball-bat cigars. And eating pizza for breakfast. :-) I've got a couple of EMACsen on my MBP, but I don't use 'em, 'cause I don't code. (Never could, really...)
1984
I used EMACS when I went to work for FMC in 1984. I didn't like it and switched back to Vi. I was doing image processing for vision systems on autonomous vehicle projects.
1985–
uemacs on a Vax...
1987–
I don't understand, why is there more than one entry under "Text Editors"?
1991–
My first Unix text editor, and still what I turn to. And live in.
1991–
Someone at University suggested Emacs as a "more powerful but slower alternative to vi".
1992–
Starting with Rmail and now everything.
1992–
You can have my emacs when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers.
1992–2005
1993–
I don't use it much on OS X but Emacs was my main editor when I used Windows and various Unices.
1993–
I hate it but I'm bound to it.
1994–2004
1994–
1996–
1997–1998
Used in Computer Science class but never learned its power features.
1998–2007
1999–
1999–
I use it when I must.
1999–
I can't even imagine what I'd do without it
2000–
editor of choice
2000–
THE ONE
2000
2000–
On and off; using it for lisp now
2001–2003
2001–
I got into it in part due to nxml-mode.
2003–
The editor I used for C programming and writing my thesis
2003–
In the beginning, God said "M-x let-there-be-light"
2003–
2004–2006
2004–
And it makes my coffee!
2007–
2007–
2008–
Was originally going to write a blog post about why Emacs sucked and why Vim was awesome and realized that its not that bad. Now I use it every day.
2008–
Current editor - prefer semantic bindings to positional bindings.
2008–
The legend, the classic, the best. All my computers have the caps lock key remapped to the control key because of it. Still learning new tricks. Started using it for projects on the side. I have it now working full time at work!
2008–
2009–
A convert from vim. In retrospect, not sure why I resisted trying it for so long. It has improved my development skills in concrete ways in a short period of time.
2009
Tried it. Didn't like it.
2009–

2009–
Messed with emacs a little bit out of curiosity, and did a Lisp programming class with elisp. Still use it now and again.
2009–
After years of back and forth, wanting to use emacs, I've finally made it my primary editor. Forcing myself over the learning curve was the best decision ever.
2010–
Trying to finally learn it, because I know I won't regret it.
2010
No. I love my mouse too much to persevere. I gave it a shot for a month.
2011–
2012–
Emacs has made me a better programmer, started out learning emacs lisp, and then into functional programming, compilers etc.
