emacs or Xemacs

Hi all
So what does one prefer to run on KDE?
What is the essential difference between them? Well Mandrake install emacs as default. what should I use as one can't probably have both at the same time?

I've never used xemacs, but from my understanding
it's only minor differences anyway, introduced after
19.x or so. The reason why I use emacs is that I can
use that one from the console as well :)
