Only since 1996. The relationship between other editors and Emacs and Vim are like Dennis Ritchie said about Unix: those who do not understand it are doomed to reimplement it -- badly.
I've used it for such a long time and I still find new things to learn about it and new features being developed for it. In particular I love Magit and Projectile.
Takes time to get to know it though, but it's really worth it. Any good editor should feel like an extension of one's self.
Discovering magit was like finding beer, on Christmas, hidden in a lower counter on your uncle's house, back when you were 12.
