Well, I did, and I didn't ;-)  That was on the order of 15 years ago.
Problems that I can remember centered around fonts, font sizes, readability,
and compatibility with my past experiences (which, by that time in my life,
were mostly Dos / Window editors--in particular, I loved (I think the name was
qedit--if there is a qedit now on Linux, I think it is something different than
I remember).

And, indeed, I might be misremembering the name.  It was a shareware editor,
and one of the few shareware programs I kept using (and paid for).

I'm remembering qedit (just "q" on the command line). It was a nice, clean, and fast, DOS editor. I was using BRIEF under DOS back then for programming, but for quick edits I was using q.

It's successor is the "semware editor", but sadly, just for Windows.
