No, I chose for vim and I keep it there. I'm not adding 3 different text 
editors, 2 different compilers, 3 different this, etc. That's not what the 
book is about. I just give a blueprint and you don't have to follow it. 
Nothing is stopping you to pretend you read 'nano' when I write vim. if I now 
replace vim with nano people will ask me to replace nano with emacs or pico 
or knotepad or ms notepad. I'm not willing to start doing those things. Sorry.
