@matt @omnipotens @Batcastle Absolutely true that vi and even emacs have a huge learning curve but I would argue putting in the time to really learn and advanced editor pays back major dividends in productivity that simply can not be achieved with other platforms. However, it really depends on how much time you spend working with plain text documents to know if the investment is worth it.
@omnipotens Ha!! vi is the only true text editor!!! :wq!
@troyh Hows it go... I've been using VI for years still trying to figure out how to quit
vi only if vim isn't installed and there's no internet access on the server to install vim. Also use Vundle for plugin management with a multitude of plugins.
nano only if I want to shoot myself... haha jk Its like mixing the worst of a CLI and GUI editor together. I'm a software developer and to be fair nano is fine for sys admins who just need to edit a file. But definitely not to program.
