OK, I tried it. I, as a emacs-fanatic, have some positive and negative
comments about Jed:

+ small, fast
+ better font-lock than DOS-Emacs

- emacs has (of course) more functions, e.g. menus (even under DOS!)
- it's definitly different from emacs, e.g. I wasn't able to load a
library and couldn't get any hint from "apropos"

Conclusion: If you want a small editor to write C programs or TeX
documents with a similar comfort as Emacs offers, take Jed. If you want
a huuuuge library of functions, a very reliable program and don't care
about disc space and memory requirements, take a look at Emacs. If Jed
wants to have the same functionality as Emacs has, it will grow...
