# What distinctions exist in between the numerous variation of emacs readily available?

Ubuntu (10.10) supplies emacs21,22,23 and also emacs - photo. What are the distinctions in between them and also which one does the emacs plan install by default? Additionally, I assume emacs-snapshot-gtk is one of the most approximately day one. I would love to utilize this due to the fact that it appears to take notice of my .Xdefaults setups, which emacs does not. What negative aspects might this create?

I make use of emacs for LaTeX, ORGmode and also ESS/R shows.

emacs-snapshot is a growth variation of Emacs. It has even more rewards yet most likely additionally extra pests, so utilize it at your very own threat. The others are launched variations ; the only factor I can assume not to install the most up to date one is if you are really brief on disk room.
The emacs plan relies on emacs23 (you can see the dependences in any kind of plan management device).
Gtk programs do not make use of X sources (.Xdefaults). Non - gtk (yet X) variations of Emacs do.
