FreeBSD We've all heard the age old argument second only to the vi vs. emacs religious wars: FreeBSD Vs Linux. As a long time linux user, I decided that is was time I spent some time on the other side of the fence to see if it was any greener. Oh, and by the way, vi rules.

Has Pico been updated recently? In any case, nano has more features (syntax highlighting, regular expressions, global search and replace, multiple buffers) with a smaller footprint than Pico, so I don't see much point in using Pico if you have the choice.

I alternate between vi, vim, nano, and Pico (depending on whats available and how large a file I'm editing).
