I have used the Homebrew version of Emacs and more recently have compiled Emacs
from source.  In general the Max OS X version works of Emacs great.  I
had tried Aquamacs in the past, but the configuration is different and
it wasn't worth the hassle.

I did find that graphical dialog boxes from Emacs would crash the
program (not sure if this has been fixed).  I put this in my init file
to fix that:

    (setq use-dialog-box nil))

Finally, org-mode works great (I use the latest version from the git
repository) on the Mac.  There are a couple of conflicts with some Mac
keybindings (I think the control-arrow keys were a problem), but it is
easy to reassign these keys in the Mac system settings or use
alternatives in Emacs.

I had to install an additional program to get PDF generation, but
unfortunately I have forgotten the details.  It was easy though...
