But thing is, Vim and Emacs are ostensibly both text editors, but they are text editors in so profoundly different ways.
Vim is a text editor the same way a Yoshihiro Gyutou is a knife. It does one thing, and it does it really really well. It is simple, yet everything is streamlined towards that one task.
Emacs is a text editor the same way an iPhone is a telephone. Which is to say, it is basically a platform, a framework, which can do anything you want, but which happens to also be very good at manipulating text.

If you think of free software as a developers' rights issue, it's a solved problem. Developers can use free stacks everywhere, and they are free to fix anything. Nobody is legally restricted from learning to be a developer. There's a pretty good live ecosystem. Mission accomplished.
If you think of free software as a human rights issue, you need to think about how all people can actually use and benefit, and usability and accessibility and localisation all become integral parts of the problem.
