Emacs would be so much cooler if instead of having games built in, it had modes for ruby, subversion, and ECB as part of the base install. A soft word wrapping feature that doesn't break syntax highlighting and incremental searching would also be really nice. (I'm really surprised this isn't here already.)

Still waiting for that old English awesomeness post.

Hey, where in Finland are you? My wife and I will be there soon - forget the town's name but it's a little place close to the Russian boarder. Southern (you know, for a scandinavian nation).

This is post your dropping of emacs, but xemacs comes out of the box with ruby mode and some other things.
