Emacs distributions aka as kits are quite numerous. There's Spacemacs, which is the elephant in the room, then there's prelude and quite a few others. It's not much different from Linux distributions.

The reason for their existence is that building a working config with bells and whistles may take quite a lot of time and effort, depending on required applications. And at some point there would be workflow disagreements. The two major areas are keyboard bindings(vanilla, vim, ergoemacs) and minibuffer completion(ivy, icicles, helm). Then there's package management, I think there's almost as many package managers for Emacs now, as there are for Unix. Init.el organization is another hotly contested area, with different ideas like storing it in org-mode and tangling.
