In hindsight, I see that perhaps I should have worded the question
differently. :)

What I want to know is the oldest version of Emacs *still in use*.
You know someone who refuses to upgrade their Emacs to the latest and
are still running the version they first encountered.  For example,
someone located the sources to Gnus 2.0 (they're up on now)
and perhaps this "stubborn" person is using it to read USENET on
Emacs 18.x-- that's what I was interested in.

>From a personal example, i skipped Emacs 20.x entirely because of the
Mule-Wars and happily lived with 19.34 for the longest time.

(I originally forgot to xpost to comp.emacs, now added; the more the
merrier :)
