Because you are either an idiot or being deliberately unhelpful?

You may not have realized, but the post you are replying to was arguing
for a defined minimally bootable runnable operating system. What Suse
used as a default FS is so completely irrelevant you should win an award...

Also, stop discriminating against emacs and Atom, which by the same
logic also belong in base because "stop being so old school".

(I really didn't realize that there was *anyone* who considered the
objectively horrible nano a standard. Almost any other editor ever,
aside from MS Notepad, is better in every respect.... Did anyone else
ever hear of this?)
