Then, don't speak for others and let them tell us how they will enjoy
using ee instead of vi/ed. Moreover, don't expect using curses based
program over serial links, it is a real pain.

BTW, you didn't describe the type of "user"/"people" you were speaking
about. If you intend to leave a new user coming from the MS Windows
world in a single user mode or with and an unconfigured rc.conf, maybe
the problem isn't the text editor he/she will use.
