which text editor keystroke set do you Just Know?

@kitsune I like vi, because when a box is completely hosed, it's usually the only working text editor left. And if /bin and /sbin are corrupted, forget it. Start over, hope you kept backups.


@drwho there's even a vi in busybox... and a static build of that is small enough to slip into the boot partition

@kitsune Yeah - it's incredibly useful. Featureful enough that I've been programming using it (writing a new version of Systembot as a shell script for embedded systems).
