Mints just a derivative of openSuse, isn't it? It would make sense that this
I thought it was a derivative of Debian and/or Ubuntu? Wikipedia has it
in the 'Ubuntu derivatives' category. But anyhow, it doesn't behave
like openSUSE, it doesn't have the weird mix - for all three tests I
used (visudo, git, systemctl edit) I got nano.

Yeah, but significant in what way? We have two fairly popular distributions
using nano, but over 1,000,000 people trying to figure out how to exit vi on
stackexchange. Is the user base for other distros defaulting to vi just that
Dunno. Maybe if Debian and Ubuntu defaulted to vi there'd be 5,000,000
