Whatever text editor works for you is the right text editor. :-)

nano/pico is definitely the quickest to learn and remember.

I recommended Emacs because it is so powerful and flexible, learning it 
can be an influential experience, and it is such a part of UNIX history 
(despite not originally having been written on UNIX).
