How about that,
It appears that many distros don't install emacs by default,
but still include it in their packages.

Installing software from packages is very easy on the command line,
but there is usually some kind of GUI available also.
Either way installing packages is distro dependent,
(.rpm, .deb, etc...) while installing from source is universal for all.

I will demonstrate compiling and installing a third party application
from source in the next few days on the command line thread.
This is a very simple process, just a few commands.
