MG used to mean MicroGnuEmacs (which places it in the EmacsFamily) for two reasons. 1) it came from Dave Conroy's MicroEmacs 2) it had similar keystroke bindings to GnuEmacs.


The FSF folks didn't like the implication, so MicroGnuEmacs was renamed to MG.

Last version I know of is MG2a.

A portable version by the guy who maintains OpenBSD's mg: http://pintday.org/hack/mg/ (404 - 090813 - DMcCunney)

I used this text editor a bunch on my CommodoreAmiga as well as a VAX. It is OpenSource and has a built-in MacroLanguage (being based on MicroEmacs). --RonPerrella

I think you're conflating MG with the Daniel Lawrence version of MicroEmacs. MG doesn't have a macro language. --DMcCunney

A new version, called MG for Windows has been written and has significant extensions: http://tillanosoft.com/ce/mg.html (Tillanosoft closed on 05/02/2012)

However, the Windows version available above is for PocketPCs? running WinCE. No port to Windows desktops on Intel is provided. --DMcCunney
