How would y'all rate the overall health of the #emacs ecosystem? I'm thinking about making the switch, but I'd want to do it right and don't want to invest the time in a platform without a bright future.

StackOverflow reports that emacs fell from 5.2% to 4.1% from 2016 -2018, which seems large in percentage terms. Does it feel like usage is falling off?

And how is John Wiegley as the new maintainer? I know he had big plans about growing the core team, but I never heard how that turned out.


@codesections I switched to (via ) last year and while I can't comment on the multi-decade prospects, I've been very happy with the ecosystem so far
