Again, I'm not against the proposal, but I would prefer a better and sane discussion.
Honestly most end users dislike the CLI.
However I understand that discussion is not about "what is my preferred editor?".
I understand that discussion is "if by chance an end user has to use CLI, he/she will not know what/how to do with vim".
In such a case nano is easier (regardless that the argument about how hard is quitting vim is exaggerated, Ctrl+o is not easier that ZZ).
A better for a newcomer that faces cli would be something like mcedit, but sadly it is not a standalone editor.
But please, again, most end users prefer to use a gui editor. Is not about that a newcomer has to know **what** is KWrite/Kate/Gedit/etc, it's about that choices are of easy access through KDE/GNOME/MATE/XFce/etc graphical environments.
