CLI text editor that is not VI

My colleague Dave put me onto the CLI text editor - on the Mac - that is Pico.

No more VI hell for me as I try and recall all those crazy Unix hippy keystrokes. Pico is easy to use and gets the job done!

For example you can drop into the CLI and type sudo pico /etc/hosts and then the root password and you are away and it is all there on the screen
