Another advantage to nano is that it is the editor that is provided
by the Debian Installer when you escape to a shell from within the installer,
such as running the installer in rescue mode to fix an unbootable system.
I forgot to mention that.

I support Linux on many systems that don't have X installed.  Consequently,
even on systems that have X installed I find myself using vi to edit files,
even though gedit is available, because I'm so familiar with vi.
But I digress.
