Not counting sed and email, the editors I use 99.8%+ of my time on Linux are
those built into OFMs, which for me are Midnight Commander and FileCommander/L.
~.01% or less of the time that no OFM is or can be made available, I use Nano.
Usually if MC isn't installed I try installing it first before trying any
fallback. MC in Konsole is one of the bits that hooked me on KDE back around the
turn of the century.
