Can I install Pico so I don't have to use vim?

We already have nano installed, which is very similar to pico.

If you want pico anyway, you'll need to build it from source in your home directory. I don't have a specific build procedure for that, but the generic build instructions in our documentation should get you going in the right direction.

Whichever editor you decide on, you make it the default by setting the EDITOR environment variable in your .bash_profile (eg export EDITOR=nano)

Hope that helps!
