I didn't start using Emacs in 1992 - you did?!
- but rather around 2008-10-17, that is
10y 7m 5d, or if you'd like, 3869 days
ago :) [1]

Emacs is free, and free of charge, and the
prettiest software ever. [2]

As for ergonomics the configuration
possibilities makes Emacs the most ergonomic
software as well. The mouse-free style of most
Emacs' hackers is also more ergonomic than the
"click and play" of much other software.

Emacs would be even more ergonomic
out-of-the-box if the default background color
was black and the cursor didn't blink by
default. (At least in the GUI Emacs, that _is_
an Emacs thing, right? In the Linux VTs, one
has to disable that outside of Emacs.)
