I'm not arguing that vim is a stupid thing, I just don't see the mentality switch that Fredrik wants to see; it's just the question of where to draw the line. FWIW, I actually wasn't aware that there are apps that let you end up in vim without you knowing it - adding "nano" additionally would not solve this, though, so removing vim would be the better option for those apps (and eventually making sure EDITOR is set by default). > open could figure out that you are logged in remotely, or that the > desktop is not > running, and then launch terminal apps in your current session.
