Re: What editor should I use?

What editor should I use?

Thou shalt use vi.

I can use vi but don't like it mainly because of the 'insert mode' idiocy.

Emacs is even worse offender because it forces you to stay in insert mode forever. The idea behind vi is that you never use insert mode to type the same thing twice, so when you are coding, you barely use it at all

If you really want a lisp-free emacs with less features, try nano.

If you are looking for something even more spartan but with a GUI, there is SciTE - quite similar to Notepad++ from the Windos world.
