It's not like I work on other people's systems that frequently. Besides, 
all Unix systems I've used so far had Joe. Well, except for that strange 
SunOS thing at the maths department. One reason why I never bothered to 
get an account there.

I do use pico occasionally and sometimes I use mcedit. And sometimes I use 
xwpe just for editing. That makes 4 editors I use regularly. That's enough 
for me.
