Actually it's nano with all custom settings enabled: autoindent, historylog, linenumbers, softwrap, tabstospaces.
I've never taken the time to learn nano yet, looks like a simple yet powerful editor.
nano's solid. If I hadn't first been exposed to emacs and vi in college, I might have gone with nano as $EDITOR. It does a good job of exposing basic functionality to inexperienced operators, but becomes more powerful with experience.
I'm super tempted to try ed :D
