It would be very useful to have a text editor on the distro. If, on istallation there is a problem with x, it is very tricky to edit config files. Regards

Life without vi[m] is unbearable for me. First thing I have had to do so far on installing 64 Studio is point to Etch repositories and install vim. Thanks for adding this. -- Michael Pacey

I use emacs myself, but anyone who sits down at any unix should be able to expect certain things to be there. I'd say vi is one of these things.

What about nano?

The default text editor in Debian is nano. However I think you're right, some people will expect to find vim as well.
