  • Responding to a month old journal entry. You've probably already found a set up that you like, but I thought I'd respond anyway. There are lots of versions of Emacs for OS X out there. I tried several, but I wasn't really happy with any of them. So I used Darwinports to compile a recent, not-yet-released version of Emacs from the GNU CVS repository. Because I was coming from Linux, I configured it to use X11 for windowing. The result was an Emacs that works and looks exactly like Emacs on Linux. I definitely recommend checking out Darwinports, or fink another popular open source packaging system on OS X. I prefer Darwinports personally, but fink is more popular. You could also use either Darwinports or fink to install a recent version of vim as well. Hope this helps!
