I agree, a console text editor is needed for those drastic recovery 
situations. vim is unusable for most people, yet nano is intuitive 
enough for most people to get by with.

FWIW I prefer vim, but I'll "apt-get install vim" if I want it.
Just don't let them make nano a dependency of ubuntu-desktop for 
heaven's sake.

Tristan Wibberley - "it" is the preferred noun of an abated intellect.

These opinions are my own, and do not reflect those of my employer.
