   Seriously, I can't think of a good way to find this out on your own.
   I don't blame you for asking; the name is far from obvious.

And yet I'm sure it could be made obvious with a simple splash screen.

"What you are looking at now is called Emacs.  It has big spaces that
you type in called 'buffers' and a stripe across the bottom with text
in it called a 'mode line'.  The mode line tells you what buffer
you're looking at (and what mode it is in).  Below the modeline is an
'echo area', more commonly called the 'minibuffer'.  At the edges of
the screen you see vertical stripes called 'fringes'.  If you type M-x
customize-basic-appearance (hold down the meta key, often Alt, and
press x, then type and tab-complete the name of the function) you can
change the way Emacs looks.  For further information, you might enjoy
the Emacs info pages, typically M-x info C-s extensible C-a RET.
Have a nice day..."

or whatever.
