In my experience any command line editor that is powerful enough to
get real work done is hard to learn at first.  (vi, emacs, etc)
The other editors (pico, nano, etc) don't even come close to the
capability of the first group.


In my opinion, if you are going to spend any significant time on the
command line, you should definitely learn one of the powerful editors,
at least the basics.
