 for GOSMACS
From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  GOSMACS
   /goz'maks/, n.
  
      [contraction of ?Gosling EMACS?] The first EMACS-in-C implementation,
      predating but now largely eclipsed by GNUMACS. Originally freeware; a
      commercial version was modestly popular as ?UniPress EMACS? during the
      1980s. The author, James Gosling, went on to invent NeWS and the
      programming language Java; the latter earned him demigod status.
