So why is the issue that _seems_ to be relevant to the group (or at least
the posters within) the minimization of the number of keystrokes or the
level of injury supposedly inflicted by its interface? 

Besides, wouldn't a discussion of an appropiate boot/rescue disk editor be
better suited for the developer's list?  It would seem to me that they are
the ones responsible for developing the actual boot disks.

I agree with Joey's original message: let's let the editor debate rest a
bit, folks, or give it focus and a new thread name.
