    I thought it was about people, but I do agree with its list (except the text editors, which I find unnecessarily hard to use)

    No, gedit is good enough for me. I don't program in Linux (at least not yet).

    Talking of gedit, does anyone know how to get files to always show as plain text rather than having the various codes tagged in various colors?
    (View > Highlight mode > Plain text) << I don't want to do that each time.

    Or, if that's not possible, could I tweak some file somewhere that specifies which color goes with which tag?

    It seems the technical phrase is "syntax highlighting". I want to turn that off. Googling for it, but if anyone knows ...

    The answer seems to be near the bottom here but it will take quite a bit of head-scratching to figure out:
    How to set the default highlight mode for new files?

    I prefer using nano for commandline text editor. When I used VI i had to read what the commands where.
