Editor Learning Curves

I think I agree with this. I've never used Pico, so I can't say. In college, I used vi for my first two years, and never totally got the hang of it. I could save and exit, and therefore, I could do what I needed to do. Eventually I switched to Emacs. I was so in love with Emacs at the time, that I even installed Emacs for windows so I could use it as my editor of choice. Eventually, the integration of Visual Studio won me over, and the fact that it also uses double key strokes (Ctrl-K, Ctrl-C is my favorite, with Ctrl-K, Ctrl-U a very close second) was a bonus!

Nothing like needing a double key stroke just to save a file!
