I am very happy that you mentioned MicroEMACS.  It was actually
MicroEMACS that introduced me to Emacs originally.  I had heard good
things about it.  As was typical then I downloaded the source and
compiled it on an HP series 500.  I liked it very much and used it for
a while.  Eventually I moved on to GNU Emacs but MicroEMACS has very
good memories for me.
