Unix text editor of choice

In reference to another hilarious xkcd strip. There you go, FK, your alt attribute will be intact.

I actually use the editor embedded in Midnight Commander more than any others, it's pretty colors keep me from making stupid coding errors and I know the command key structure really well, but nano is definitely my second choice. I've tried to use emacs, I really have, but I can't get over the steep part of the learning curve.

vi and vim taunt me from afar. I have to know how to use them because they are always present, but I dare not enter that realm lest I lose my ability to use any other editor. Don't taze me, vi!
