As a new sys-admin, what text editor should I use?
I’m a new sys-admin working mostly with Ubuntu - I’ve heard many text editors mentioned, such as Vim, Vi, Emacs & Nano but I don’t know which I should use.
I’ve been told Vi is too archaic and cliched, but that’s what they taught us in college! Vim seems like a second choice with Emacs clearly being the frontrunner. Never got a chance to use Nano ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
