I don't. I use it all day every (work) day. I'm using it now, to
compose this message, in conjunction with slrn.
The carbon port of fsf emacs 21.3.50 is imo highly stable if you build
it from recent sources. So is xemacs 21.4.13, both as an X11 client
and in terminal (-nw) mode. As an X11 client it has the added
advantage over carbon or aqua of being runnable remotely.
Apple's terminal-only build that comes with osx is also fine. If you
run it in Terminal.app you can get opt-as-meta support (though not in
combination with ctrl), as well simple mouse-click cursor positioning.
It also inherits a form of drag-and-drop from Terminal.app, which is
not available in emacs otherwise.
You mean the one at http://emacs-on-aqua.sourceforge.net/ ? This is
pretty old -- 20.7, I think? It's definitely not as well integrated
as the carbon port.
There's also a 'native' version of xemacs 21.5 for osx:
Last time I checked it was in a very primitive state. But that's
been awhile now.
