Re: Editor wars considered harmful
The problem is that no editor is popular with everyone, and nobody is
learning VI any longer, and Emacs isn't so popular either. The solution
is to put up a menu of check-boxes of what editor you want, and install
it from packages as soon as possible after the system is installed.
Adding editors to the base is a slippery slope. The reason you add one is
just as good to add the next...
