Tongue-in-cheek and all as the question may be, I'm pretty sure you can boot
with anything that knows how to find all the bits necessary for its own
execution (i.e. shared libs). So there's nothing (AFAIK) stopping you in
theory from using emacs as your init process. Not terribly practical or
anything, but hey.
Waider. I use emacs AND vi, which means I can look down on, say, Pico.
