I have been staying out of this debate, since you guys are doing so
well all by yourself.
Also, I have no opinion on "the one true distro" (but it isn't RedHat
because of RPM) and the "one true editor" is ed (talking about doing
things the unix way).
I myself use nedit because it's simple and most of the things I do
don't require the kitchen sink apporach of emacs. Besides emacs never
does white space correctly. Programmes viewed in emacs look ugly.
