I realize that for a newbie vi might be harder to use, but if a system is
really hosed and you really want to fix the system, pico will _really_ hurt
to have to use.  The size of a minimal vi is next to nothing when the
instimage/ dir is already 50+ megs :)

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2000-02-11 14:27:59 UTC
For a newbie vi is *impossible* to use; that's the difference.  A vi user can
use pico -w, even if they don't like it. (Besides, once you've fscked /, use the
vi that's on your root partition why not?)
