    I like the concept of the editor wily though. Only works in Grafical mode, as it relies heavily on chords on the mouse. You must have a three button mouse…
    But otherwise I prefer Emacs, both in text and graphical mode. And the key bindings in Bash are the same as in Emacs.

    I prefer Vi, but I’m biased given that I prefer it for all editing.
