	You might be surprised to learn that Emacs goes back to the 1970s in
it's original incarnation as the Editing MACroS for TECO. The first version
dates from 1976, the same year Bill Joy wrote the original vi. Stallman's
GNU Emacs rewrite dates from 1985 though which is probably the one you're
thinking of.
