Pray tell me how a father is supposed to bond with newborns. You do realise that babies sleep most of the time? And when they're awake they're too fragile for us to play with. And newborns are practically blind so it's not as if they can see us yet. Not that I'm opposed to paternity leave. Any kind of paid leave if fine by me. But in terms of necessity, we only need a couple of days after delivery to facilitate the delivery, hospital admissions and discharge, and registration of the babies and such. But after mother and child is settled at home and all the registration stuff is done, there's not really much for the father to do at home during the day.

I use nano because for me it is the best text-mode "text editor". I use it to "edit text". Not for coding, which I guess is what you're talking about. For just "editing text", nano is the most user-friendly. There's no need for all those advanced features you mention when all I want to do is "edit text files". I'm talking about plain "text files", the kind that just have words and punctuation and none of the code tags or whatever that needs to be syntax highlighted. Just normal words in English or other language and none of the programming words that need to be auto-completed. You know what I mean?
